Dna polymerases

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: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

... this way. I take the results of PCR and put it in a test tube with RNA polymerases, Ribosomes, and other proteins that help with protein synthesis. ... it from the protein synthesis enzymes using a centrifuge. As far as the DNA side of things first I do DNA extraction(in this case of my own DNA). ...

A question regarding PCR

Hello everyone. Let's say I have this microsatellite DNA sequence: 5’-acatttg CTT CGTACACAAC TGTGCGAACA TGC caacctca tgcaacctca cacacacaca ... not clear to me how to answer it. When the two DNA strand separate and have polymerases amplifying them, won't the initial products have different lengths ...

Why is ATP rather than GTP, CTP or TTP the energy currency?

... loop set in, and it became dominant. Obviously, all 4 are used by DNA polymerases, and GTP is used by numerous receptor proteins. I'm not aware of much use for TTP ...
