The replication profiles of human X‐chromosomes are studied by RBA‐technique. It is suggested that the late replicating X‐chromosome can be arbitrarily classified into 8 types. Furthermore, data suggest that the individual cells are under self‐control pertaining to the inactivated X‐chromosome. This may reflect that the altered chromatin may not be uniform in the process of inactivation.
