Do you use a reference?
Are you using cultered cells?
Maybe the "prominent" peak is a 2n G1 peak and the second peak is your 4n G1 population and you are dealing with endoreduplication.

Hi all,

I have been doing some cell cycle analysis by PI staining and noticed the appearance of a prominent peak on the left of the G1 peak in my cells. It does not seem to look like a subG1 peak or cell debris.  Does anyone know  what this peak represents? (see attached)

Thank you for your time.
