What happens if there is a mistake in DNA replication?
Replication of the DNA is an important process in an organism. Replication of the DNA results to a synthesis of a new DNA strand from the parents strand. The process involves series of reactions catalyzed by specific enzymes. The main enzyme for the replication of the DNA is the DNA polymerase.
Answer and Explanation: 1
DNA polymerase catalyzes the synthesis of the new DNA strand by adding nucleotides to the strand. The synthesis of the DNA strand moves from 5' to 3'...
