Okazaki Fragments: Short sequences of DNA synthesized on lagging strand 3. Lagging Strand: DNA synthesized in the direction away from the replication fork 4. Helicase: Enzyme that opens DNA by breaking hydrogen bonds 5. Primase: Synthesizes RNA primers needed to start replication 6. Topoisomerase: Helps relieve the strain on DNA when unwinding by causing breaks and releasing the DNA 7. RNA primer: Signals for DNA polymerase to bind 8.
