RNA Dependent DNA Polymerase Activity in Mammalian Cells

Abstract

A DNA polymerase that can copy RNA–RNA and RNA–DNA synthetic templates has been found in normal mouse and normal human cells. Partially purified polymerases from both sources have properties that are similar to those of the mouse leukaemia virus enzyme.
