Abstract
The experiments reported in this paper lead to the following conclusions: 1An endonucleolytic activity is associated with the “replication site” in Escherichia coli cells; this endonucleolytic activity attacks the complementary strand of the ϕ x replicative form DNA only. 2The viral strand of the ϕ x-replicative form DNA remains circularly closed during the replication cycle; 3In the immediate replication product both composing strands are linear; in circularization no strand is prefered; 4A replication product with both strands closed is transiently found in a structural state which can be, under our experimental conditions, only partially denatured by alkali. Subsequently it is transformed to a typical supercoiled RFI structure.
