what are okazaki fragments? They are newly synthesized DNA fragments that the lagging template strand during DNA replication
what is the function of RNA Priming? RNA primers act as the beginning of the Okazaki fragments
what removes the RNA primers? DNA polymerase removes the RNA primers at the end of the Okazaki fragments polymerization
The Okazaki fragments are joined together by which enzyme? DNA ligase
Are okazaki fragments complementary to which template strand? They are complementary to the lagging template strand
On which strand does DNA replication proceed continuously? The leading strand
On which strand does DNA replication happen in fragments or installments? The lagging strand
The installments in the lagging strands are joined together by? DNA ligase enzyme
How are Okazaki fragments joined together? The complete but still separated Okazaki fragments are then joined into a single strand of DNA via the enzyme, DNA ligase. One way to consider the concepts of continuous versus discontinuous replication of DNA is in terms of obtaining tape from a role of tape.
why does the DNA replication in the lagging strand happen in installments? Because the enzyme that synthesize the new DNA can only work in one direction along the parent DNA molecule. On the leading strand this direction is continuous, but on the lagging strand it is discontinuous
DNA is synthesized in what direction? from 5' to 3'
Why are Okazaki fragments only found on the lagging strand? Okazaki fragments are short, newly synthesized DNA fragments that are formed on the lagging template strand during DNA replication. They are complementary to the lagging template strand, together forming short double-stranded DNA sections.
What is the enzyme responsible for DNA replication? DNA Polymerase is the enzyme responsible for the catalyzing and addition of nucleotide substrates to DNA both during and after DNA replication
what enzyme is responsible for initiating synthesis of RNA primers on the lagging strand during DNA replication? Primase
How are Okazaki fragments on the lagging strand joined into one continuous strand? These fragments are processed by the replication machinery to produce a continuous strand of DNA & a complete daughter DNA helix.
