Nucleic acid synthesis in microsporocytes of Lilium cv. cinnabar: events in the nucleus.

Abstract:

In an electron microscopic autoradiographic study of DNA and RNA synthesis during meiosis isolated Lilium microsporocytes were supplied with [3H]thymidine and [3H]uridine. DNA synthesis occurred in the nucleus during the zygotene and pachytene intervals of meiotic prophase. Most of the activity was associated with the chromatin, but some synthesis early in zygotene was located at the nucleolus. RNA synthesis occurred throughout prophase until diplotene, when all activity ceased until after di...
