Abstract

An isoleucine arrest point in G1 was determined by two methods for CHO and 3T3 cells. In the first method the fraction of cells entering S after isoleucine deprivation was assessed by [3H]thymidine labelling and autoradiography. In the second method cells entering S after isoleucine deprivation were identified by double-label autoradiography using [3H] and [14C]thymidine. From the fraction of cells entering S, determined by the two methods, the arrest point in G1 (and entry into G0) is located within the last 40 min of G1.
