Meiosis in the male mouse has been studied autoradiographically in air-dried preparations. Information has been obtained on the relative rates of DNA synthesis and the lengths of the S-periods in spermatogonia and spermatocytes. The average rate of synthesis in the spermatocyte is lower, and the S-period is of longer duration than the preceding spermatogonial generations. The labelling pattern of the sex-chromosomes and autosomes observed at diakinesis and metaphase II in cells labelled at the… CONTINUE READING
