The DNA of polyoma (PY) virus has two interesting features: it is unusually resistant to heat or formamide denaturation,(1) and it has two distinct components, of sedimentation coefficient 14 and 21, respectively.(2) A two-component sedimentation was formerly shown to be a characteristic of the DNA of papilloma virus,(3) which is considered a member of the same group of viruses.
