Storyboard Text

  • 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
