DNA and nucleotides

Postby smcflurry » Tue Aug 24, 2010 6:00 pm

Hi,

I think I know the answer but I can't find a definitive answer: during DNA replication, can nucleosides with monophosphates or diphosphates be used or only those with triphosphates?

Thanks!

only dNTPs

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Thanks for the reply, Jack. Does the use of strictly dNTPs address energy issues during polymerization? Do diphosphates not provide enough energy for the reaction?
