6 Key Enzymes and Proteins 1. DNA Polymerase 2. Ligase 3. Primase 4. Telomerase 5. Helicase 6. SSBPs 7. Topoisomerase
Background image of page 6
7 Key Enzymes and Proteins • DNA Polymerase – Catalyzes polymerization – Adds to 3’ end – Can only add to 3’ OH group – Can “back up” for repair – Vary between eukaryotes and prokaryotes

8 Key Enzymes and Proteins • Ligase – Forms covalent bonds to join adjacent strands – Okazaki fragments • Primase – Synthesizes short RNA primers – RNA polymerase – Binds to helicase
Background image of page 8
9 Key Enzymes and Proteins • Telomerase – Adds DNA to 3’ end – Uses its own internal RNA sequence • 5’--TTAGGG in all vertebrates • 3’ ends of chromosomes have lots of those repeats – Discoverers awarded Nobel Prize in 2009

10 Key Enzymes and Proteins • Helicase – Separates double-stranded DNA – Replication, transcription, recombination and DNA repair and other – A class of enzymes – Uses energy from hydrolysis of ATP

11 Key Enzymes and Proteins • SSBP – Single-stranded binding proteins – Associates with single-stranded DNA – Prevents re-annealing – Stabilizes single-stranded DNA
