DNA Function II: Replication 18:56 DNA Function II: Replication The DNA Replication Process Enzymes break bonds Two  nucleotide chains serve as templates Unattached nucleotides attracted to complementary base Two new strands of DNA, each having one of the original strands. Mitosis: Production of Identical Somatic Cells Cell division in somatic cells Growth, repair, or replacement of tissues. Produces two daughter cells that are genetically identical to the original cell. Diploid cells. Meiosis: Production of Gametes
