An alternative to semi-conservative replication is conservativereplication in which the parent strands come apart only temporarilyto serve as templates for synthesis of daughter strands but thencome back together again as they were originally and the two newdaughter strands then also form a duplex molecule. What singlefeature of the Meselsohn Stahl experiment allowed this conservativereplication hypothesis to be rejected? (Hint:To answer thisquestion you can consider the banding pattern produced on thecesium chloride density-gradient centrifugation following one roundof replication in the Meselsohn Stahl experiment.)
