Concept #1: Leading & Lagging DNA Strands

Practice: Which is involved in replicating the lagging strand of DNA, but is not involved in leading strand replication?

Practice: Which of the following statements correctly describes the difference between the leading and the lagging strands of DNA during DNA replication?

Practice: The mechanisms of DNA synthesis differs between the two new daughter strands during replication. This is due to the fact that:

Practice: Below is a close-up of the portion of a DNA replication bubble.

Helicase is shown as a yellow triangle currently moving from left to right. Based on what you know about the creation of new DNA during replication, which is the lagging strand and why?
