Summary • DNA is a double-stranded helix, sugar-phosphate backbone on the outside, base pairs (A=T, G=C) on the inside, strands anti-parallel. • DNA polymerase III cannot initiate synthesis, and only synthesizes in the 5’to 3’ direction. One DNA strand is synthesized continuously, the other discontinuously. • Primase makes a short RNA primer which provides DNA polymerase III with a 3’-OH for DNA synthesis. • DNA polymerase I removes the RNA primer and replaces it with DNA. • Ligase makes the Fnal phosphodiester linkage.
