DNA replication: Conservative, Semiconservative, or Dispersive? Matthew Meselson and Franklin Stahl (1958) => semoiconservative DNA replication in circular chromosome of bacteria John Cairns (1963) unidirectional or bidirectional? => bidrectional How many origins of replication? One or many? => One in prokaryotes DNA polymerase I First in vitro synthesis of DNA -> Authur Kornberg 1957 (Nober Prize 1959) DNA polymerase requirements: dNTPs, Template, Primer DNA polymerase I functions: 5’-> 3’ polymerase activity
