Concept

Problem: When DNA replicates:  a. The original DNA is not affected and a new double-stranded DNA is made from two new strands of DNA b. One strand of the original DNA ends up in each of the new DNA molecules c. The original DNA unwinds, and multiple copies of a region are transcribed before the DNA closes back up d. Transcription factors determine where to begin DNA replication e. A cell that was diploid (2N) will now be tetraploid (4N)
