Abstract

A large part of replication is aborted in human mitochondria, the result being a D-loop. As few attempts have been made to distinguish free 5' ends of true replicate from those of abortive ones, we examined the 5' ends of true replicate of human mitochondrial DNA at one nucleotide resolution in vivo by making use of ligation-mediated polymerase chain reaction. The distribution and relative amounts of origins of the true replicate are exactly the same as those of total newly synthesized heavy strands, which means that the abortion of replication is independent or 5' ends. Treatment of DNA with RNase H frees 5' ends on both heavy and light strands. This is the first in vivo evidence for covalently attached primer RNA to nascent strand in human mitochondrial DNA.
