Dna polymerase

Dna polymerase

(Science: enzyme molecular biology) enzymes involved in template directed synthesis of dna from deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates.


i, II and III are known in E. Coli, III appears to be most important in genome replication and i is important for its ability to edit out unpaired bases at the end of growing strands. Animal cells have and polymerases, with apparently responsible for replication of nuclear dna and for replication of mitochondrial. All these function with a dna strand as template. Retroviruses possess a unique dna polymerase (reverse transcriptase) that uses an rna template.

Re: Purpose of a primase/polymerase localized to the cytosol?

... it may be helping maintain/regulate RNA levels in cytosol by e.g. recharging decaying RNA levels in cytosols for extended translation. If it is a DNA pol, it might be a long surviving vestigial remnant of bacterial ancestry. It might be helping maintain proper levels of environmentally uptaken ...

Purpose of a primase/polymerase localized to the cytosol?

Hi, I recently read a paper, "PrimPol, an Archaic Primase/Polymerase Operating in Human Cells" by Garcia-Gomez et al. This polymerase was largely localized to the cytosol - I'm wondering if anyone has ideas as to why that would be the case or ...

Annealing Temparature

... at 50°C and the rest at 65°C. Denaturation for 10s will be enough, but a bit higher temperature 95-98°C might be better. Elongation depends on polymerase, so 1 min can be enough for Phusion, but 4 min will be required for Pfu.
