Premature reinitiation of DNA replication is prevented by hydrolysis of the ATP bound to DnaA and several mechanisms that prevent new binding. These include binding of DnaA protein to sites away from oriC as well as a lack of methylation of newly replicated DNA containing the sequence GATC. The dam methylase that catalyzes the reaction lags some 10 min behind the replication fork, and the lack of methylation impedes DnaA binding. Other factors preventing premature initiation of new rounds of replication include binding of oriC to the cell membrane and the necessity to accumulate additional DnaA–ATP complexes.

There are 16 physically distinct chromosomes in S. cerevisiae, ranging in size from 200,000 to 2200,000 bp (200–2200 kb). The total length of DNA present is about 14,000 kb. Physically, the DNA molecules underlying these chromosomes are linear structures, although the ends of the DNA strands (telomeres) within a single helix seem to be joined by material that is neither protein nor DNA. The telomeres consist of repetitive DNA and are the functional equivalent of double-strand breaks, although repair enzymes do not see them as such (Lydall 2003).
