How can we test this?
How can we eliminate
some of these? Fig 16-14 What is the “synthesis” reaction to
build the DNA strand?
(What is being added to what?
Where does the energy come from for
this synthesis?) • DNA polymerases adds
nucleotides to the 3' end of
a strand of DNA. If a
mismatch, the polymerase
• Proofreading removes the
mismatched nucleotide and
extension continues. DNA polymerase adds the 5’ phosphate of the new
nucleotide to the 3’ sugar of the growing chain.
Explain each of these:
- Complementary Base Pairing
- Proofreads DNA polymerase is wonderful; it...
