We have used the multicopy human rRNA genes as a model system to study replication initiation and termination in mammalian chromosomes. Enrichment for replicating molecules was achieved by isolating S-phase enriched populations of cells by centrifugal elutriation, purification of DNA associated with the nuclear matrix, and a chromatographic procedure that enriches for molecules containing single-stranded regions, a characteristic of replication forks. Two-dimensional agarose gel electrophoresis… CONTINUE READING
