 Title    Effects of Polynucleotides on Production and Activity of Streptolysin S  
 Abstract    Activity o f various natural and synthetic polynucleotides as a carrier for streptolysin S was tested in a resting cell system. As the carrier, intact m olecules o f M S2 R N A , E. coli tR N A or rat liver R N A were almost inactive, whereas R N ase I core o f these R N A s, especially the core frac­ tions eluted from DEA E-cellulose colum n at higher NaC l concentrations, effectively induced pro­ duction o f the extracellular hem olysin. The carrier activity o f yeast R N A was significantly en­ hanced by sim ultaneous addition o f R N ase I, to the streptococcal suspension. Preincubation o f yeast R N A with growing streptococci or a protein fraction from the bacterial culture supernatant increased its carrier activity. Evidences were obtained suggesting involvem ent o f streptococcal nuclease in the enhancement o f the carrier effect. Production o f the streptococcal hem olysin was markedly prom oted by polyguanylic acid but neither by polyadenylic acid, polycytidylic acid nor by polyuridylic acid. Like trypan blue, polyguanylic acid exerted potent inhibitory effect on hem olytic activity o f streptolysin S complex. Similar but less marked effect was observed with certain R N ase I core fractions o f rat liver R N A. Som e data concerning effect o f polynucleotides on stability o f the hem olysin were also presented.
