The mol percentage of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine is 2.2 times greater in the adult than in 2-day-old rat brain DNA. The concentration of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine falls in corresponding liver DNA preparations. This normal increase in brain 5-hydroxymethylcytosine is abolished in rats placed on an 8%-protein diet 5 days after birth.
