The original strand of DNA is unzipped by an enzyme that breaks the hydrogen bonds between the bases. This process continues until the entire strand of DNA has been unzipped and copied.

What happens after DNA is unzipped?

This method is called " Semi-conservative " which replicates the DNA so it begins with unzipping, unwinding the DNA by breaking down the hydrogen bonds between the nitrogenou

What is the enzyme that unzips DNA?

There are several enzymes that 'unzip' DNA. These enzymes are  collectively known as DNA helicases. DNA helicases are  helix-destabilizing enzymes that bind to DNA at the or

What occurs when a molecule of Dna is unzipped?

One double stranded Dna molecule is separated into two single stranded Dna molecules. A large multitude of bioprocess possibilities subsequentially present themselves!

What happens when a molecule of DNA unzips?

DNA splits, and mRNA and tRNA are there to create new strands for the new replicated DNA strand. This is what happens prior to mitosis in cell division.

At the beginning of DNA replication what two processes unzip the two strands of a DNA molecule?

Transcription and replication. According to evolution that is. Is this question asking at the begininning of time, or an overall in-body DNA question? Life as we know it canno

What enzyme unzips DNA and RNA?

The enzyme used to unzip human DNA (and RNA) is called helicase. There are a few types of helicase such as DNA helicase, RNA helicase, etc. Each type has its own specific role
