 Title    Interaction of Organophosphorus Insecticide Methylparathion with Calf Thymus D N A and a Synthetic D N A Duplex  
 Abstract    The interaction of an organophosphorus insecticide m ethylparathion (O.O-dimethyl 0-4-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate) with double-stranded DNA was characterized by UV and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy. Two kinds of DNA were employed: calf thymus DNA (CT DNA) and a synthetic two-stranded oligomer of sequence 5'-d(TTG GA TCCG AA TT-C A A G CTT)-3\ Melting curves and CD spectra were taken for the DNAs in the presence of the insecticide at methylparathion/DNA base pair molar ratio of 0.5. The insecticide evoked a decrease of the melting tem perature and a broadening of the transition range for CT DNA. Similar effects were observed for the synthetic oligomer but they were less pronounced than in the case of CT DNA. M ethylparathion evoked a slight shift and an increase in the ampli­ tude of the negative band in the CD spectra of both DNAs. O btained results indicate that methylparathion may perturb the thermal stability and conformation of DNA, which is an evidence that the insecticide has an ability to interact directly with DNA.
