The new box of utilized genetic examine, genetic toxicology and mutation examine investigates the muta- genicity and cancerogenicity of chemical compounds and different brokers. everlasting adjustments in genes and chromosomes, or genome mutations, should be caused via a plethora of brokers, together with ionizing and nonionizing radiations, chemical compounds, and viruses. Mutagenesis study has goals: (1) to appreciate the molecular mechanisms resulting in mutations, and (2) to avoid a inconsiderate creation of mutagenic brokers into our surroundings. either facets, particularly, easy and utilized, may be taken care of within the new sequence Advances in Mutagenesis Research.

Similar compositional oscillations could be seen in other DNA sequences in both coding and noncoding DNA regions. They do not seem to be correlated with any protein feature coded by the DNA and do not correspond to spacing in the chromatin due to the nucleosomes. I propose here that this spacing may be related to the alternating pattern of syntheses of DNA leader and DNA trailer subsegments of the Okazaki pieces, by different enzymatic activities of the DNA primase-polymerase alpha com80 I I I I I I I I I 100 ~ ~ 60 u + ~ 40 20 0 525 1050 1575 2100 2625 2625 3150 3675 4200 4725 5250 80 ~ ~ '-" 60 u + ~ 40 20 Nucleotides Fig.

Tn stretch, a remnant of the polyA tail of mRNA. This effect diminishes the average GC content of the intergenic sequences. Such differences between the bias of all mutations and the bias of base substitutions has been found in Alu-repetitive sequences embedded in the GC-rich alpha-globin gene cluster. The point mutations there are biased towards GC, but the global mutational bias is directed towards the accumulation of AT. 3 Bias of Mutations in the Alu-Repetitive Sequences Mutational bias of substitutions in various chromosomal regions can be studied by comparing the mutations occurring in a nontranscribed nucleotide sequence which does not have any selective value and which is embedded in various genomic regions.

The compositional features of both coding and noncoding sequences in eucaryotes correlate with the regional composition of the eucaryotic DNA (see Fig. 2, Bernardi et al. 1985). Recently Sueoka (1988) made an attempt to estimate the relative contributions of mutational bias and selection to the evolution of coding sequences which can be summarized as follows: the average GC content of a gene results from the accumulation of compositionally biased mutations which are subsequently exposed to selection.
