Abstract

SUMMARY: Dothistromin, an anthraquinone derivative produced by the pine-blight fungus, , inhibits the growth of and At growth inhibitory concentrations, dothistromin strongly inhibits incorporation of [H] uridine into RNA of both species. With , marked inhibition of [H] uridine incorporation is apparent within 5 min of addition of dothistromin, but only a slight inhibition of [H] thymidine incorporation into the DNA-containing fraction or of [C] leucine incorporation into protein is detectable after 10 min.
