DNA replication patterns of female mitotic metaphases of S. latifolia after 5-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine (BrdU) labeling and FITC-immunodetection (green). (a) Early pulse of BrdU shows that the chromosomes start to replicate at their ends. (b) BrdU applied at the middle of S phase. (c) Metaphase of the cell labeled at late period of the S phase showing largely only centromeric signals, but one X chromosome is late replicating (XL). Chromosomes are counterstained with 4’-6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) (red); X chromosomes are indicated. Scale bar: 10 μm (B. Vyskot).
