DNA Replication Quizzes & Trivia


Have you ever wondered what you would do if you could make a clone of yourself? Most scientists believe that it is possible to do so by understanding the genetic make-up of a person though it has not been made possible. Well, I...

    What are the four nitrogen bases for DNA?

Transcription is the first step of gene expression, where the messenger RNA is decoded in a ribosome to produce polypeptide which later folds into an active protein and performs its functions in the cell. During this one week, we...

DNA Replication Questions & Answers


What would be the corresponding DNA strand using the following DNA sequence? ATTGCGACCGAG
None of the answers above accurately answer the question. DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid and is a self-replicating material that nearly all living organisms have. DNA carries the organism's genetic information. In DNA, the neucleotides of one s
What enzyme will solve this problem in the lagging strand? (Pay attention to the red section in the picture).
Ligase is the enzyme that will fix this lagging strand. When DNA is replicated for cell division, only one of the strands can be replicated in one continuous strand. The other half of the DNA is replicated in short spurts. This short spurt results in
What is the function of DNA polymerase III?
The function of DNA Polymerase III is that it performs 5'-3' polymerase function, which helps transcribe DNA into RNA. It can also proofread any mistakes made during replication. It was discovered in 1970 by biochemist Thomas Kornberg and Malcolm Gef
What is DNA replication?
DNA replication is the process wherein the DNA makes a copy of itself. This usually occurs during cell division. The double helix structure will be unzipped first then the hydrogen bonds will be broken down. The separated structure will then create t
