Storyboard Text

  • Hey Mr. Rims I'm really confused about how DNA replication works it's really confusing can I stay after class for some extra help
  • DNA Replication
  • Sure Kyle I have something very interesting to show you that will better your understand of DNA replication
  • DNA Replication
  • Here is my magic shrink gun that will allow us to shrink to the size of a DNA helix to see how DNA replicates in the cell.
  • DNA Replication
  • Ok get ready
  • Ok, Kyle so this right here is DNA. When it comes to DNA replication there are 3 major steps involved. The 3 steps are Strand Separation, Building complementary, Strands Dealing with errors
  • There are some things you must understand before looking at the first step. Each strand has a 5' prime end and a 3' prime end. The 2 strands run in opposite directions. This determines how each strand of DNA is replaced
  • The first step is to separate the 2 strands. The enzyme Helicase unwinds the DNA to form a replication fork. As that is happening SSB Proteins bind to the strands of DNA to keep them separated.
