Unformatted text preview: process is catalyzed by the enzyme DNA polymerase. Since each copy of the chromosome will now contain one original parent strand and one newly synthesized strand, the process is called semiconservative replication. This is a complicated process. First, we must take another look at the structure of the two complementary strands of DNA. The sugars of one strand are upside down compared to the sugars of the other strand. Each carbon in a sugar molecule is numbered, 1 -- 5. This is the structure of one sugar molecule: This is the way the sugars are arranged in a complementary section of DNA....
