Abstract

In a subclone of ID13 mouse fibroblasts latently infected with bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV-1) DNA, the viral genome occurred as a mixture of extrachromosomal circular monomers and oligomers. Multiple copies were also associated with the host cell genome, predominantly at a single site in a head-to-tail tandem array. We examined the replicative intermediates of extrachromosomal forms of BPV-1 DNA by using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The results obtained indicate that initiation of DNA replication occurred near the center of the EcoRI-BamHI 5.6-kilobase fragment. In some molecules, however, this fragment was replicated from one end to the other by means of a single fork initiated elsewhere. Termination also occurred within this fragment. The EcoRI-BamHI 2.3-kilobase fragment replicated as a DNA molecule containing a termination site for DNA replication and also by means of a single fork traversing the fragment from one end to the other. Thus, replication forks proceeded through these fragments in different manners, apparently depending on whether they were part of a monomer, a dimer, a trimer, or higher oligomers. These observations lead to the conclusion that initiation of DNA replication in BPV-1 DNA takes place at or close to plasmid maintenance sequence 1. From this point, replication proceeds bidirectionally and termination occurs approximately 180° opposite the origin. The results obtained are consistent with one or more replication origins being quiescent in BPV-1 DNA oligomers.
