DNA polymerase I
replaces RNA (primers) with DNA; has both polymerase and exonuclease (degrading of nucleotides) activity
DNA polymerase III
catalyzes elongation of new DNA at a replication fork by the addition of nucleotides to the existing chain; does the majority of synthesis
takes gaps/nicks in DNA (small holes with 5' and 3' ends) and fills them in (related to Okazaki fragments)
single strand binding proteins
bind to the unwound & unpaired DNA strands, keeping them from re-pairing
works ahead of the replication fork; cuts DNA to relieve tension as unwinding is happening, and seals it back together
tandemly repetitive DNA at the end of eukaryotic DNA; protects coding region of the organism's DNA from being eroded during successive rounds of replication
an enzyme in eukaryotic cells that can add telomeres to the ends of chromosomes after they divide
things necessary for transcription
1) DNA template; 2) ribonucleoside triphosphates (ATP, CTP, etc.); 3) RNA polymerase to catalyze reaction (1 in bacteria, 3 in eukaryotes)
enzyme that links together the growing chain of RNA nucleotides during transcription using a DNA strand as a template
(transcription) unwinding of DNA, reading of template strand 3'->5' and transcription 5'->3'
(transcription) ending of transcription signaled by specific base sequence; RNA polymerase falls or is pulled away
