    • Abstract


      DNA primase from yeast mitochondria was shown to have a molecular weight of 67 kDa by SDS-PAGE and an S value of 5.5. It was shown to have preference for SS mitochondrial DNA especially fragments containing origins of replication, as a template to initiate DNA replication. Further examination of the enzyme showed its possible association with a ribonucleotide moiety essential for enzyme activity.
