Comments
Comments occurs in bacteriophage DNA [PUB_0477]; majority of m5dC in bacteria is due to action of restriction-modification systems [PUB_0478]; 100% replacement cytidine in E. coli phages T2, T4, T6 [PUB_0478]; hypermodification renders bacteriophage DNA resistant to several restriction endonucleases [PUB_078]
