The time of replication in S phase was determined for the 7.3 kb EcoRI segment containing the β-major globin gene and the 14 kb EcoRI segment containing the β-minor globin gene in a murine Friend erythroleukemia virus transformed (MEL) cell line. Cells were obtained from different intervals of S phase by centrifugal elutriation to avoid artifacts of chemical synchronization. Newly synthesized DNA from different parts of S phase were obtained by isolation of 5-bromouracil (BU) labelled DNA from these cells. The BU-DNA synthesized during four different intervals of S was transferred to diazobenzyloxymethyl (DBM) paper and hybridized with a β-globin cDNA probe. Quantitation showed that both β-globin segments were replicated in the first quarter of the S phase with no significant difference in their time of replication in this MEL cell line.
