Methylation of adenine in replicating and nonreplicating DNA of the ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila was examined. In growing cells, 87% of the methylation occurred on the newly replicated daughter strand, but methylation was also detectable on the parental strand. Methylation of nonreplicating DNA from starved cells was demonstrated.
