For both nucleic acids, adducts with LT~ could be readily detected using mass spectrometry. The yield of DNA and RNA adduct increased as the quantity of DNA and RNA in the reaction mixture increased from 25-400 ug, In all cases, the total quantity of adduct was higher for the incubation with RNA compared to an equal quantity of DNA, suggesting that the nucleoside bases present in RNA were more reactive than the nucleosides present in DNA. Reaction of Native DNA with LTA.. In order to investigate whether or not DNA packaged within the nucleus of cells could be a substrate for the reaction with LT~, experiments were carried out with RBL-2H3 cells using conditions to maximize the half-life of LT~.
