Unformatted text preview: your own) B. How is replication achieved in Eukaryotes? 1. origins of replication (Fig. 16.12) 2. initiator protein binds to origin site 3. Helicases and single strand binding proteins (Fig. 16.16) 4. DNA polymerases catalyze the addition of nucleotides to nascent (forming) DNA strand 5. Primer (made by primase) required to initiate replication at each origin site and at every Okazaki fragment (Fig. 16.16) 6. Primer removal and replacement by DNA polymerases and ligase joins DNA fragments (Fig. 16.15) 7. Proof-reading/repair enzymes: read pp. 305-306 on your own 8. Ends of chromosomes unusual (Telomeres): read pp. 306-307 on your own...
