Difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic dna synthesis, navigation menu
DNA DeoxyriboNucleic Acid is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic information, which are used in the development and functioning of all living organisms exception RNA viruses. One "O" and one "T" together form one replicon.
The discontinuous stretches of DNA replication products on the lagging strand are known as Okazaki fragments and are about to bases in length at eukaryotic replication forks.
The formation of the pre-replicative complex pre-RC marks the potential sites for the initiation of DNA replication. In prokaryotes, mRNA molecules are polycistronic containing the coding sequence of several genes of a particular metabolic pathway.
Therefore mRNA processing is not required. At the leading strand, loading of the PCNA is an infrequent process, because DNA replication on the leading strand is continuous until replication is terminated.
