Abstract

SUMMARY

The nearest neighbour frequency pattern analyses of the DNAs of a minute virus of mice, Kilham rat virus and H-1 virus were very similar to each other. They were also similar to the pattern of the host cell DNA, apart from differences related to structure, the virus DNAs being single-stranded and the host double-stranded. All three DNAs exhibited the low frequency of the dinucleotide sequence CpG previously found in mammalian DNAs and in the nucleic acids of small mammalian viruses. The sizes and densities of the virus particles were measured, and the molecular weight of H-1 DNA was determined.
