BIOL K101 Chapter 16 Outline DNA Structure and Replication DNA Structure Discovery of DNA Structure Sugar-Phosphate backbone Nitrogenous bases Adenine (A) Guanine (G) Thymine (T) Cytosine (C) Double strand Double helix DNA Replication New strand formed using the template and DNA polymerase and other enzymes Semi-conservative replication Origins of Replication DNA helix unwinds and “unzips” Helicase Single Strand Binding Proteins Topoisomerase Replication Bubbles (multiples) Replication Forks Leading Strand Synthesized continuously 5’-3’ DNA Polymerase III Lagging Strand Synthesized Discontinuously Away from the Replication Fork 5’-3’ Primase DNA Polymerase III Okazaki Fragments DNA Polymerase I DNA Ligase Proof Reading and Repair Error rate of 1 in 100,000 nucleotides DNA Polymerases proof read as the strand is synthesized Nuceotide Excision Repair Thymine dimmers (bases covalently link)
