DNA Replication

Post by bionerd09 » Wed Feb 17, 2010 8:20 pm

What is the difference between initiator proteins in DNA replication and DNA helicase? Do they not do the same thing?

Thanks!

not really, the initiators tell you, when are you supposed to start the replication, they are located on the replication origin.
The helicase unbounds the DNA strands.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
