Abstract

Chronology of the cell cycle has been determined for brain cells in Aedes aegypti (L.) larvae by autoradiography. The time of the cell cycle is approximately 10 h and 30 min. Areas of late DNA synthesis in metaphase chromosomes were localized mainly on the female determining (= m) chromosome of the sex pair. Correlations between late replication patterns and C-banding are discussed.
