Abstract:

The addition of a halogen at peak 5 of a pyrimidine turns the RNA so modified into a donor on a DNA or a normal RNA. That is why FU AND FO are able to prevent the division in half of the DNA. The addition of CH3 on the cytosine turns the DNA of the T2 phage into an acceptor with regard to the DNA of E. coli. This is what may cause the formation of the DNA of the phage at the expense of the DNA of the bacterium.
