Unformatted text preview: The remaining unreplicated fragment of DNA can now be completed because it is now in the 5 to 3 direction which is required by DNA polymerase. This regenerates the original DNA of the same length. No DNA is lost. Concatemers of multiple genomes are continually created and individual genomes are cut off and replication is completed over and over again. Diagrams from: Biochemistry 3107 - Fall 2001 Bacteriophage Replication web site The 3' overhangs cannot be replicated. Instead, these are used to fill the gaps to form a long strand. This is broken by an endonuclease that forms 5' overhangs. These can be replicated.
