Continuation To DNA Replication

Direction Of Replication
WOW! That is a lot to take in, but that is so cool!
Thank you so much for all of this! I learned many new things and I got my questions answered.
After the RNA Primer is replaced by DNA (by another DNA Polymerase), DNA Ligase joins the Okazaki Fragment to the growing strand. The end product is two semi-conservative daughter DNA molecules. And that is all of the things I learned from the book I read.
Another thing I learned from my book was about the Direction of Replication. The Leading Strand elongates as DNA unwinds and is replicated continuously. The leading strand follows a 5 prime to 3 prime direction, but the lagging strand follows a 3 prime to 5 prime direction. The leading strand is synthesized continuously, whereas the lagging strand isn't. Primase synthesizes a short RNA Primer, which is extended by DNA Polymerase to form an Okazaki Fragment.
