View Section 2 Replication Of Dna Images. A complex molecule present in all living cells and responsible for storing genetic information in its sequence of bases. During dna replication, each of the two strands that make up the double helix serves as a template from which new strands are copied.
While the leading strand and lagging strand replicate differently, each individual nucleotide added to each strand is attached through the same mechanism. However, dna pol iii is able to add nucleotides. Replication ensures that each resulting cell will have a complete set of dna.
In prokaryotic cell, there is one ori whereas in eukaryotic cell number of ori is more than one.
The bases lie horizontally between the two spiraling strands15 (animated version). Adenine is always matched with thymine with two hydrogen separated dna strands form a replication bubble at the origin of replication. <p>this subsection of the 'function' section provides information relevant to cofactors. Dna replication process uses dna polymerase as the main enzyme.
