Sample text

An enzyme called DNA polymerase makes the new strands, one nucleotide at a time. To begin, the polymerase requires a short RNA primer, provided by the enzyme primase. Once primed, DNA polymerase moves along the template strand in the 3’ to 5’ direction, making a new complementary strand, 5’ to 3’. Nucleotides are selected for incorporation in the new strands based on their ability to pair with their complements on the template strand. So, if the template strand displays a G, DNA polymerase adds a C; if the template strand displays an A, DNA polymerase adds a T.
