DNA Proofreading During Replication DNA polymerase is almost error-free in inserting new nucleotides into the growing polypeptide chain, but occasionally a mistake does occur (approximately 1 in 10 5 nucleotides inserted is incorrect). DNA polymerase is actually part of a larger aggregation of proteins called a replication complex. A site on this complex is able to detect that an incorrect nucleotide has been inserted, and remove the incorrectly inserted nucleotide. The replication complex then inserts the correct nucleotide.
