 Title    Effect of Streptococcal Extracellular Nuclease on the Carrier Activity of RNA for Streptolysin S  
 Abstract    Upon digestion with a streptococcal extracellular nuclease, yeast RNA yielded acid-insoluble core having increased carrier activity for streptolysin S. The carrier activity was found in minor fractions of the core which were eluted from a DEAE-cellulose column at higher salt concentrations. Upon gel filtration through a Sephadex G-75 column, the effective component (Fr. I) was eluted earlier than bulk oligonucleotides (Fr. II). Nucleotide composition (in mol %) of Fr. I was AMP: 21.8; GMP: 55.1; CMP: 8.2; UMP: 14.9, whereas that o f Fr. II was AMP: 38.0; GMP: 33.1; CMP: 8.0; UMP: 20.9. Chromatographic patterns of SLS complex induced by Fr. I were similar to those of the toxin formed in the presence o f active fraction prepared from RNase I core. Hemolytic activity of the latter complex was, like the former, unaffected by streptococcal nuclease treatment. The carrier activity o f DNA digested with the nuclease was also investigated.

 Title    Decreased Production of RNA-Streptolysin S in Streptococci Devoid of Extracellular RNase Activity  
 Abstract    In cultures of certain streptococcal strains, R N A added as a carrier for streptolysin S (SLS) was hardly degraded, owing to deficiency of extracellular RNase activity. Production of RNA-SLS into culture supernatant was markedly reduced in the RNase-deficient streptococci. Even in these RNase-less strains, guanylic-acid rich oligonucleotides, polyG or trypan blue effectively induced SLS production, as in RNase-positive cells. These results demonstrate involvement of the streptococcal nuclease in manifestation of SLS-inducing effect of exogenous RNA. Additional data indicated that cellular growth was promoted by supplementation of RNA, in the nuclease-producing streptococci.
