DNA synthesis in a thymine-requiring Escherichia coli K12 strain was studied by exploiting deoxyguanosine, so simulating the behaviour of Thy+ strains. DNA synthesis is inhibited during the first 25 min after a nutritional shift-up. The new DNA/mass is lower than that predicted by current models for initiation control.
