The "chunks" of replicated DNA during discontinuous synthesis
The strand of DNA that is the blueprint for the transcription of RNA.
Sometimes called the "sense" strand
Must be replicated in chunks because the 5' carbon faces the replication fork.
The two strands of nucleotides are __________ to each other.
DNA polymerase III
The main polymerase responsible for the majority of DNA synthesis.
The chain of nucleotides has a _____ to _____ orientation.
the semiconservative model
Meselson and Stahl concluded that the mechanism of DNA replication is: semiconservative
Each strand of DNA acts as a template for
