Replication of the Eukaryotic Chromosome Nucleotide triphosphates (in the forms ATP, GTP, CTP and TTP) are assembled according to the semi-conservative model. Other details of DNA replication are consistent with what we know for prokaryotes. Eukaryotic DNA has many replication forks and also bidirectional synthesis, contrasting to the unidirectional rolling theta

Unformatted text preview: prokaryotic method. Eukaryotic DNA is synthesized much slower than prokaryotic DNA, in humans 50 nucleotides per second per replication fork. After replication the new DNA is immediately associated with histones....
