The Process of DNA Replication

This video explains the process of DNA replication and the synthesis of new DNA strands.

00:00:06 This video explains how DNA replicates and carries genetic information. It shows the structure of a DNA molecule and the process of complementary base pairing during replication.

💡 DNA is a nucleic acid that carries genetic information and can be replicated.

🔗 A DNA molecule consists of two polynucleotide chains that form a double helix through complementary base pairing.

🧬 During DNA replication, the hydrogen bonds between the bases break and the two DNA strands separate.

00:01:12 DNA replication is a process where each DNA strand acts as a template for the synthesis of a new DNA strand, resulting in two identical DNA molecules.

💡 DNA replication involves the synthesis of new DNA strands using existing strands as templates.

🧬 DNA polymerase is the enzyme responsible for catalyzing the synthesis of new DNA strands.

The resulting DNA molecules are identical to the original molecules, with each containing one original strand and one new strand.
