  • Slide 1
  • 8.3 DNA Replication Topic: DNA replication Objective: DNA replication is when DNA is copied. nucleotide The DNA molecule unzips in both directions.
  • Slide 2
  • 8.3 DNA Replication Replication copies the genetic information. A single strand of DNA serves as a template for a new strand. General Description: DNA is replicated during the S (synthesis) stage during Interphase of the cell cycle..IS COPIED

  • 8.3 DNA Replication LETS IDENTIFY THE STRUCTURES ON THE RIGHT FIRST 1.PHOSPHATE AND SUGAR BACKBONE 2.BASES 3.FREE FLOATING BASES WITH ENZYME 4.NEW STRAND OF DNA
  • Slide 4
  • 8.3 DNA Replication Proteins carry out the process of replication. Process: 1. Enzyme is called HELICASE unzips the double helix 2. Free-floating bases pair with the exposed bases that have been unzipped nucleotide The DNA molecule unzips in both directions. nucleotide The DNA molecule unzips in both directions.
  • Slide 5
  • 8.3 DNA Replication 3. Another enzyme, DNA polymerase, bond the nucleotides together to form the double helix DNA polymerase new strand nucleotide
  • Slide 6
  • 8.3 DNA Replication original strand new strand Two molecules of DNA 4. END RESULT: Two new molecules of DNA are formed Original is blue, new is orange.
