Abstract Natural populations of oceanic prochlorophytes were sampled from the northwestern Mediterranean Sea in winter, stained with the DNA-specific fluorochrome DAPI, and analysed by flow cytometry. DNA histograms exhibited two peaks (G 1 and G 2 cells, containing one and two genome copies, respectively), separated by a trough of DNA-synthesizing cells (S cells). This suggested a cell cycle with a discrete S phase similar to that observed in eucaryotes or slow-growing procaryotes. Nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
