A genetic test for side-chains in a phage chromosome

Myron Levine, Roy Curtiss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A NUMBER of authors1 have proposed side-chain models of the chromosome. The chromosome, as suggested most recently by Taylor, consists of a double core or central backbone, with double deoxy-ribonucleic acid helices 2 attached at right angles. These double helices are connected to the core at specific attachment points so that one polynucleotide chain of each helix is attached to one half of the core and the other polynucleotide chain to the other half.
