Notes Feb 12 Lecture 8 - Fig 25.5-6 o Okazaki fragments made on the lagging strand o Lagging strand is made backwards 5’-3’ relative to the replication fork o DNA polymerase cant start new chains o Strands start with RNA by RNA polymerase called primase Uses ribonucleoside triphosphates Can start new chains at the 5’ end without a primer Associated with proteins at the replication fork to keep the DNA replicated at a rapid speed- replisome complex Travels along the template of the lagging strand Lays down RNA nucleotides complementary to the template Does not require a specific sequence, instead it lays down primers at random every once in awhile and then stops very quickly RNA piece is very small because primase just stops Makes half-a-turns worth of RNA (10 bases would be a full turn) o Know the direction of which RNA primer is placed first by primase Fig 8.11/5-13 - The old primer is replaced by DNA - There are different enxymes that can chew up the RNA polymerase - If there is some nuclease the chews up the RNA, then it leaves a gap -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
