Do water-activated eggs undergo DNA replication?

The fate of unfertilized eggs is interesting when they are activated 
by simply exposing to water. Following activated, they undergo a 
relative long cytokinesis showing unpredictably located cleavage 
furrows. I wonder whether cytokinesis is preceded by associated 
DNA replication in the egg nuclear. Where can I find the authoritive 
references about this progression? Any reply should be 
appreciated. Sincerely Fangjun Jia
