I am currently searching for a molecule that would chemically link the
basies of DNA, for example a molecule like mitomycin that links a G to
a C.  The chemical I am intereseted in would covalently bind the bases of
opposite strands to one another, thus chemically linking the strands of
DNA.  This has to be a chemical or an enzyme that will work at 4
degrees Celsiu and is site specific and not a random linker.
