What strategies do cells use to ensure that newly replicated DNA does not contain errors? (more than one answer)
a. DNA polymerase replaces the newly replicated DNA on any chromosomes on which there are mistakes.
b. Enzymes proofread the DNA after the DNA has been replicated and replace any mismatched nucleotides.
c. Enzymes repair mistakes in the new DNA double helix after the new double helix separates from the original double helix.
d. As DNA polymerase synthesizes new DNA, the DNA polymerase finds and corrects misplaced nucleotides
e. Enzymes remove and resynthesize any misshapen sequences in the DNA prior to replication.
