A DNA polymerase activity is associated with Cauliflower Mosaic Virus

Nucleic Acids Res. 1984 Dec 11;12(23):8769-78. doi: 10.1093/nar/12.23.8769.


A DNA polymerase activity is found within the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus (CaMV) particle. Analysis of the reaction product reveals that the linear form of the virion DNA is preferentially labelled. The molecular weight of the DNA polymerase as determined on an "activity gel" is 76 kDa.
