Selective activation of pre-replication complexes in vitro at specific sites in mammalian nuclei.


As the first step in determining whether or not pre-replication complexes are assembled at specific sites along mammalian chromosomes, nuclei from G(1)-phase hamster cells were incubated briefly in Xenopus egg extract in order to initiate DNA replication. Most of the nascent DNA consisted of RNA-primed DNA chains 0.5 to 2 kb in length, and its origins in… (More)
