the true definition of replication complex

Post by flyingfree » Sat Jan 09, 2010 9:14 am

When studying the chapter about replication of DNAs, I found a statement that replication complexes help catalyze reactions of replication. While in the other part of the textbook, it said that DNA helicases and Single-strand binding proteins are involved in replication of DNAs as well. Both of the descriptions have already confused me. Are DNA helicases and single-strand binding proteins respectively some kinds of replication complexes? Is there any difference between replication complexes, DNA helicase and single-strand binding replication? Thanks for any constructive advice and answera!
