More recent work has shown that the deduction that the alkylating agents depolymerize DNA is invalid and that the observed changes in the physical properties have a different explanation. A discussion of the factors which are responsible for non-Newtonian viscosity is necessary for an understanding of this important reaction. The increase of viscosity with decreasing rate of shear of dilute DNA solution is of the same order of magnitude as that found in certain rela- THE REACTIONS OF CARCINOGENS WITH MACROMOLECULES 27 tively concentrated solutions of colloids where it results from the formation of network-like aggregates which are broken down in streaming.

0 ‘ ciple named leukotaxine was a polypeptide of relatively low molecular weight. 5% (see Fig. 9). D. Summary. The reactions of the carboxyl of proteins near their isoelectric point with the cytotoxic alkylating agents is anomalous. From chemical consideration, supported by experiments with model substances and other macromolecules (see p. 17), reaction with the carboxyl groups, and no reaction with the amino group’s is to be expected. Mustard gas comes closest to these predictions, but even with this compound the fact that at the most half of the available carboxyl groups react is surprising.

7, to a network of interlocking points. , when there is a minimum force necessary below flow occurs), which is not the case for the polymers under consideration. Alexander and Hitch (1952) studied the viscosity of polymethacrylic acid (PMA) and found that samples of very high molecular weight (ca. 2 X loe) had viscosities in extremely dilute solutions, showing the same characteristics as those of DNA (see Fig. 2, p. 17). The shape of a PMA molecule can be altered in steps from an almost fully extended rod to an expanded random coil and finally to a tightly collapsed particle (see p.
