Unformatted text preview: 4. What is the difference between conservative and semi-conservative replication? 5. Why does replication proceed from the 5 to 3 direction? 6. The rate of DNA replication averages 1000 nucleotides per second. How long does it take E. coli to replicate its 4,000 kb genome if replication is bidirectional from one origin? Unidirectional from one origin? How long would it take to replicate a human chromosome of 150,000 kb if replication is bidirectional from one origin at the centromere and the rate is 3,000 nucleotides per minute? From 1,000 origins? 7. What is meant by discontinuous replication? 8. What are the three physical requirements for DNA polymerase to proceed? 9. What is a primer?...
