One day, as I was in the nucleus of my cell...
I know what you're thinking! Don't worry, I made sure to take my DNA Gyrase to relieve any strain & prevent me from supercoiling again...
I realized that it was finally my turn to replicate!
First, my enzyme friend, Helicase 'unzipped' my double-helix into 2 strands...
Then my other friend, Polymerase, created new complimentary strands for me...
He always moves from 5' to 3'...
RNA primers are protein molecules...(they're not from my neighborhood) & they provided an attachment and initiation point for DNA Polymerase III...
...Yes, Polymerase III is my friend's brother. I see you're keeping up!
He has these rules he calls "complementary base pairing"I can explain it to you...it's not that hard
DNA Polymerase III adds the deoxynucleoside triphosphate (nucleotides) to my 3' end
