True or False: (1 point each) a) DNA polymerase III in E. coli is responsible for replication of both the leading and the lagging strand. TRUE b) DNA polymerase I is a processive enzyme. FALSE c) Apurinic sites are created by removal of a nucleotide containing G or A. FALSE d) The normal tautometic form of nucleotides is their keto form. TRUE 2. The enzyme that adds repetitive sequences, called telomeres to the ends of chromosomes in eukaryotes (prokaryotes/eukaryotes) is called telomerase. This enzyme uses a RNA ( RNA/DNA) template for synthesis of DNA (RNA/DNA). Therefore this enzyme has activity of a reverse transcriptase (DNA polymerase/RNA polymerase/reverse transcriptase).
