As stated above, I'm struggling and this paper did not have the solutions. Help :(


Unlike DNA polymerase, primase does not have
proofreading activity.
1. Why can't a (more accurate) DNA polymerase
make the primers needed to initiate DNA
2. Do you think that the use of primase reduces
the overall accuracy/fidelity of the DNA replication
process? Why/why not?
