DMSA

   A mercaptodicarboxylic acid used as an antidote to heavy metal poisoning because it forms strong chelates with them.

DNA Adenine Methylases
An enzyme responsible for producing a species-characteristic methylation pattern on adenine residues in a specific short base sequence in the host cell DNA. The enzyme catalyzes the methylation of DNA adenine in the presence of S-adenosyl-L-methionine to form DNA containing 6-methylaminopurine and S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine. EC 2.1.1.72.

DNA Adducts
Covalent adducts between chemical mutagens and DNA. Such couplings activate DNA repair processes and, unless repaired prior to DNA replication, may lead to nucleotide substitutions, deletions, and chromosome rearrangements. (Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)

DNA (Cytosine-5-)-Methyltransferase
An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosylmethionine to the 5-position of cytosine or to the 6-position in adenine in mammalian DNA. EC 2.1.1.37.

DNA (Cytosine 5) Methyltransferase
An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from S-adenosylmethionine to the 5-position of cytosine or to the 6-position in adenine in mammalian DNA. EC 2.1.1.37.

DMSO
A highly polar organic liquid, that is used widely as a chemical solvent. Because of its ability to penetrate biological membranes, it is used as a vehicle for topical application of pharmaceuticals. It is also used to protect tissue during cryopreservation. Dimethyl sulfoxide shows a range of pharmacological activity including analgesia and anti-inflammation.

DMSA

DMPS
A chelating agent used as an antidote to heavy metal poisoning.

DNA Dependent RNA Polymerase I
A DNA-dependent RNA polymerase present in bacterial, plant, and animal cells. The enzyme functions in the nucleolar structure and transcribes DNA into RNA. It has different requirements for cations and salts than RNA polymerase II and III and is not inhibited by alpha-amanitin. EC 2.7.7.6.

DNA Dependent DNA Polymerases
DNA-dependent DNA polymerases found in bacteria, animal and plant cells. During the replication process, these enzymes catalyze the addition of deoxyribonucleotide residues to the end of a DNA strand in the presence of DNA as template-primer. They also possess exonuclease activity and therefore function in DNA repair. EC 2.7.7.7.

DNA Databases
DATABASES containing information about NUCLEIC ACIDS such as BASE SEQUENCE; SNPS (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE); NUCLEIC ACID CONFORMATION; and other properties. Information about the DNA fragments kept in a GENE LIBRARY or GENOMIC LIBRARY is often maintained in DNA databases.
