arcanumm  This makes sense have reading what your comment. I overlooked this and just assumed the GATC was a mutation that allowed the restriction enzyme to work on the mutant only. +2  
arcanumm  it makes even more sense when looking at "numerous small fragments." Methylation is truly the obvious answer here in retrospect. +1  
bgiri  DNAse can also cause a change in base by breaking down dna at the GATC sequence? +  
almondbreeze  @bgiri Had the same reasoning - according to wiki, DNase catalyzes the hydrolytic cleavage of phosphodiester linkages in the DNA backbone, thus degrading DNA. +

In prokayotes Normally methylase adds methyl group to certain base(adenine) so restriction endonuclease can not recognize this site. If there is a mutation in methylase enzyme it can't add methyl group to adenine so restriction endonuclease can recognize it and can cleave it.
