DNA replication

Post by element41skater » Sat Apr 30, 2011 6:56 pm

DNA Replication:
a) starts at an AUG.
b) requires GTP as the energy molecule
c) always starts at a Promoter.
d) requires a free 3' hydroxyl.


I am leaning towards C. This is because a promoter is a DNA sequence that a RNA primer binds to. Thus starting replication.

not really, promoter is used in transcription, not replication ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

what about primer synthesis? Although that's nucleotide adding as well...
