DNA replication in cells takes place in domains scattered throughout the nucleoplasm. We have characterized the dynamics of DNA synthesis in synchronized mid-S-phase HeLa cells. Saponin-permeabilized cells were allowed to elongate nascent DNA chains in presence of biotin-dUTP for 5, 15, and 30 min (a pulse experiment), or for 5 min followed by an incubation with unlabeled precursors for 10 or 25 min (a pulse-and-chase experiment). The replication foci were then identified in ultrathin section...Expand abstract
