DNA Replication: Leading & Lagging Strand ________ Strand Synthesis proceeds smoothly as the replication fork unzips. ________ Strand Synthesis away from the replication fork (Okazaki fragments); joined by DNA ligase.

Let’s Practice How Leading & Lagging Daughter Strands Are Built Within the Replication Bubble 5’ Replication Fork Replication Fork Now lets look at how replication of the leading and lagging strands occurs at each of the two replication forks within the replication bubble: 1. Label each end of the parent strands as either 5’ or 3’. 2. Start a RNA primer for each daughter strand and label its 5’ and 3’ ends. 3. Show how new strands are built (continuously or discontinuously). ?’ ?’ ?’ RNA Primers ?’ ?’ ?’ ?’ From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Replication Mistakes: _________ of Genes Change in the nucleotide base sequence of a genome; rare. Almost always bad news, but... Rarely leads to a protein having a novel property that improves ability of organism and its descendants to survive and reproduce.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
