The size of DNA replication intermediates from Drosophila cells pulse-labeled with 3H-thymidine for 30-120 sec was determined by electrophoresis in formamide-polyacrylamide gels. Replication intermediates were formed in three discrete size classes, with median lengths of 61, 125 and 240 nucleotides. Replication intermediates in the 125 nucleotide size class… (More)
