During replication, the template strand is being used by the DNA polymerase enzyme to synthesize its complementary strand. Following a semi-conservative process, this will be the resulting daughter double-stranded (ds) DNA placed in an antiparallel direction relative to the template strand. As a result, two daughter dsDNA will be created from a dsDNA parent. In this process, it should be remembered that from either strand A is complementary to T and C is complementary to G.
