Journal: Describe how DNA is replicated. Q. What is the shape of DNA?. A. Double Helix. Q. What is the “backbone” of DNA . A. Sugar and phosphates. Q. What is the product of DNA replication?. A. Two Identical daughter strands. Q. What does DNA polymerase do?.
A. Double Helix
A. Sugar and phosphates
A. Two Identical daughter strands
A. Adds the nitrogen bases & proof reads the DNA sequences
A. growth and cell division
a harmless version of a disease-causing microbe
Causes an immune response…
The body will make antibodies to fight the microbe
Virus that infects bacteria
During the Synthesis (S) phase of Interphase
Half of a replication bubble, where the DNA seperates.
Phosphate group, Sugar (deoxyribose), & nitrogen base
Purines and Pyrimidines
Adenine and guanine
Thymine and Cytosine
When a nucleotide joins the strand, phosphate groups are broken off
DNA unwinds, hydrogen bonds break, replication bubbles form, bubble grow together, two identical strands formed.
Change in nucleotide sequence
