Select from the frequently asked questions below
- DNA replication is a semi-conservative process because half of the parent DNA molecule is conserved in each of the two daughter DNA molecules.
- DNA replication begins when an enzyme, DNA helicase, breaks the bonds between complementary bases in DNA.
- This exposes the bases inside the molecule so they can be “read” by another enzyme and used to build two new DNA strands.
- The two daughter molecules that result each contain one strand from the parent molecule and one new strand that is complementary to it.
What will happen to DNA replication if we remove primase from the cell but add primers in unlimited quantity?
