DNA replication key terms

DNA helicase
Enzyme that unzips the two strands of DNA molecues
1 of 5
DNA polymerase
Enzyme that lines up the new nulceotides along to DNA template strands.
2 of 5
DNA ligase
Enzyme that catalyses the formation of phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides.
3 of 5
Conservative replication
DNA replication where the double helix remains intact and new strands form (disproved by Meeleson and Stahl experiment)
4 of 5
Semiconservative replication
DNA replication where the double helix unzips and each strand replicates to produce a second, new strand (proved by Meeleson and Stahl experiment to be the way DNA replicates)
