What are the base-pairing rules for DNA? Guanine (G) binds with Cytosine (C) Adenine (A) binds with Thymine (T) 2. How is DNA replicated? The rungs of the DNA ladder split down the middle and the uprights pull apart. New bases are matched up to the exposed bases on each upright. 3. The two-step process by which cells read a gene and produce a string of amino acids that will eventually become a protein is called: ____________________ and ______________________ 4.
