The one reference on effect of uranium on DNA is

Stearns DM; Yazzie M; Bradley AS; Coryell VH; Shelley JT; Ashby A;
Asplund CS; Lantz RC. (2005) Uranyl acetate induces hprt mutations and
uranium-DNA adducts in Chinese hamster ovary EM9 cells.  Mutagenesis 20(6):417-23.  

I have not studied it critically as I could not secure the text of the full paper.

         In light of the source, I'm going to take a giant leap of cynicism 
and say it is someone's imagination working overtime.  If I am wrong, and U 
can attach itself to DNA, I welcome anyone's correction.
