Abstract

Bacterial restriction endonucleases have been used to cleave SV40 DNA at specific sites. The resulting fragments have been ordered in the molecule, resulting in a physical cleavage map of the SV40 chromosome. With this map as a reference, sites of initiation and termination of DNA replication have been located, as have regions of the genome expressed early and late in productively infected cells. The 5'→3' orientation of each strand of SV 40 DNA has also been determined; from this information and prior identification of the early and late template strands, the direction of early and late transcription could be deduced.
