Is the leading strand of DNA made continuous?
Yes it is! The Lagging strand is discontinuous.
The continuous strand is known as the leading strand. Read More

Sure, why not? Read More

Why is replication on one strand of DNA continuous while on the other strand the replication must be discontinuous?
New strands of DNA can only be created in one direction - 5' to 3'. This is because only the 3' end of the DNA is able to join to a new nucleotide. The two strands of DNA are antiparallel - meaning they run in different directions. Therefore only one strand (called the leading strand) is running in the correct direction for continuous replication. The other strand (called the lagging strand) must first be looped… Read More
What is a long continuous strand of DNA that contains genes often see in the shape of an x when with its homologous pa?
The dna strand is a exstractisies Read More
The leading strand is the correct orientation, so it can be replicated continuosly - meaning the DNA Polymerase can continue to add new nucleotides without stopping. New DNA strands can only be created in a 5' to 3' direction. This is different to the lagging strand - which must be looped and copied in small, non-continuos segments. These segments are known as Okazaki fragments. Read More

The two strands of DNA in animal cells are arranged backwards to each other - the start of one is paired with the ending of the other. However, the enzyme that replicates DNA (DNA polymerase) can only work from start to finish. On one strand, DNA polymerase can work front to back in a continuous chain - the strand that allows this is called the leading strand because it "leads" in completion status. On the… Read More
Two strands. In DNA replication, a lagging strand and a leading strand. Read More
The leading strand is synthesized continuously in the 5→3 direction, while the lagging strand is synthesized discontinuously in the 53 direction. Read More
This is typically called the template DNA, which is the anti-sense strand of DNA. The strand that is not transcribed is called the sense strand. Read More
The lagging strand is called the lagging strand because, unlike the leading strand, DNA polymerase can not replicate in a 5' to 3' uninterrupted flow on this strand. Remember, DNA has two strands that run ANTIPARALLEL, one to the other; in other words they run in opposite directions. Read More

During DNA replications a complementary strand of DNA is made for each original DNA strand thus if a portion of the original strand is CCTAGCT then the new strand will be?

What property of DNA polymerase leads to the formation of a leading strand and a lagging strand during DNA replication?
DNA polymerase's property to link nucleotides as they form base pairs with single stranded DNA. Read More
No, both will be synthesized in opposite directions Read More
The enzymes involved in DNA replication are helicase, binding proteins, primer synthesizers, DNA polymerases and DNA ligases. The helicase unwinds the two nucleotide strands and the binding proteins stabilize the single stranded DNA. The DNA polymerases attach the free nucleotides to the growing strand and the DNA ligases seal the new short stretched of nucleotides into a continuous strand. If there are any errors in the process, the DNA polymerases, ligases, and others also proofread… Read More
Semiconservative replication of DNA involves a template. A template is one strand of the DNA molecule. The leading strand is synthesized continuously in the 5 to 3 direction. Read More
Yes, an RNA primer must be added to the leading strand by a primase enzyme (DnaG in E. coli) before DNA polymerase can copy the strand. The RNA primer is later degraded and replaced with DNA by RNAse and other ribonuclease enzymes (enzymes that hydrolyse RNA) and another DNA polymerase. Read More
The Leading strand is synthesized in the same direction as the movement of the replication fork, and the lagging strand is synthesized in the opposite direction. Also the Leading strand is synthesized continuously, whereas the lagging strand is synthesized in short fragments that are ultimately stitched together (okazaki fragments.) Read More

Not in general replication as the leading strand is replicated straight away. The lagging strand is replicated in pieces that need ligase to affix them, one to the other. However, in a replication bubble, when a lagging strand runs into a leading strand, and later the primers are replaced, ligase is still needed. Therefore, technically, the leading strand does need the ligase once. Read More
The enzyme DNA polymerase synthesises strands in the 5 prime to 3 prime direction, and as DNA is antiparallel the replication of the leading strand occurs from the 3 prime end of the template to the 5 prime end of the template. Read More

DNA undergoes DNA replication which involves the DNA strand unwinding and acting as a template for the next strand. The replication produces 2 additional strands that are made from the original DNA strand. Read More
The two strands of Double stranded DNA are in a Three-prime to Five-prime end-over-end head-to toe configuration. DNA may be synthesised in only the 5' to 3' direction - this is the Leading Strand; synthesis of the 'oppositely configured' Lagging strand occurs using 'Okazaki fragments'. Read More
The two strands of a DNA molecule are antiparallel to one another (the backbone of one strand runs from 5'-3' while the complimentary strand runs 3'-5'). Unfortunately, DNA polymerase, the enzyme responsible for replicating DNA, can only make DNA in a 5'-3' direction (and read DNA in the 3'-5' direction). Also, it needs a "primer" to give it a place to bind and start replication. So this creates a problem when synthesizing the 3'-5' stand… Read More
