Certain natural RNAs are capable of releasing the DNA template restrictions on soluble rat liver chromatin, when assayed with an excess of exogenous DNA polymerase. A marked difference in the capacity for DNA template activation was observed among the RNAs isolated from yeast, Escherichia coli, rat liver and MS-2 and Qβ bacteriophages. The effects observed with the natural RNAs were compared with several synthetic polyribonucleotides.
