Which of the following enzymes is important for relieving the tension in a helix as it unwinds during DNA synthesis


True or False: Single DNA molecules are said to be antiparallel when they are lined up next to each other but oriented in opposite directions


Leading strand

1. only one primer needed 2. made continuously 3. daughter strand elongates toward replication fork
