1. draw both the double stranded DNA molecules after replication has occured. show both the parent and daughter strand, are any nucleotides missing? why?
2. What proteins could you use to seperate DNA strands and keep them seperated?
1. Replication of DNA follows semiconservative model. Both daughter DNA synthesized from parent DNA contains half of their content from parents. A single strand of parent DNA act as template on which a complimentry strand is formed and thus no any nucleotide miss in the daughter DNA. For better unserstanding see the attached image.
2. SSB proteins (single stranded binding proteins) cover the separated strands of DNA near the replication fork, keeping them from coming back together into a double helix and thus keep both the strands separated. Helicase opens the double stranded DNA.
