Enzyme that synthesizes a new strand of DNA by adding nucleotides to a 3' OH end using a DNA strand as a template.
Joins the okazaki fragments together by linking the 3' OH of one strand to 5'PO4 of another...
Adds repetative strands to end of telomeres to prevent degregation
Enzyme that binds DNA ahead of replication fork and acts as a swivel to relieve supercoiling.
RNA primers are removed by this, DNA polymerase fills in gaps.
Binds to chromosomes and temporarily breaks and rejoins bonds so they can be seperated
Small pieces of newly synthesized DNA that occur on one side of the replication fork that are subsequently joined up.
Uses ATP energy source to catalyze the breaking of H-bonds holding two strands together.
Once strands are seperated, these bind to seperate strands and prevent reannealing.
Enzyme that synthesizes a short piece of RNA that allows DNA synthesis to initiate.
