Abstract Results are reported from a study of the ability of irradiated and non- irradiated desoxyribonucleic acid to incorporate tritium-labeled thymidine or tritium-labeled desoxycytidylic acid in the presence of the desoxyribonucleic acid-synthesizing enzyme system from regenerating rat liver. Desoxyribonucleic acid isolated from call thymus was used in all experiments. An aqueous solution of the acid was irradiated with various doses of gamma radiation. Irradiated, as well as non-irradiated, samples were used as primers to study the incorporation of either labeled thymidine or labeled desoxycytidylic acid into desoxyribonucleic acid in the presence of desoxyadenylic acid, desoxyguanylic acid, desoxycytidylic acid, thymidine, adenosine triphosphate, and the desoxyribonucleic acidsynthesizing enzyme system prepared from regenerating rat liver. Results are tabulated.
