Apurinic and Apyrimidinic Sites in DNA
An outline review is given of the chemical properties of apurinic and apyrimidinic sites in DNA, the rate of introduction of such sites under different conditions, secondary lesions such as chain breaks, and the properties of endonucleases that specifically attack DNA at apurinic sites.
