Stage-specific DNA methylation in a fungal plant pathogen. Academic Article uri icon


  • Significantly more 5-methylcytosine residues were found in the DNA from the dormant sclerotia of Phymatotrichum omnivorum than in the DNA from the metabolically active mycelia of the fungus, as shown by high-pressure liquid chromatography of acid-hydrolyzed DNA digests and by restriction of the DNA with the isoschizomers MspI and HpaII. N6-Methyladenine was not detected in GATC sequences in the DNA isolated from either stage.
