Abstract

The correlation between termination of DNA replication and cell division in Escherichia coli was studied under conditions in which DNA replication was slowed down without inducing SOS functions. The experimental system used involved amino acid starvation of synchronized cells in the presence of methionine. The results further support the essential correlation between termination of DNA replication and initiation of division processes.
