Residual thymidine incorporation in the presence of chloramphenicol in synchronous cultures of Escherichia coli B-r.

Abstract

Escherichia coli B/r ATCC 12407 which grew synchronously with interdivision times of 45 and 85 min were exposed at intervals to chloramphenicol (200 mug/ml) and [(14)C]thymidine for short or long (residual) periods. The results suggested that the pattern of residual thymidine incorporation in 85-min cells yielded an estimate of the length of the D period… (More)
