Which enzymes are involved in Dna replication?

Two of the enzymes involved in DNA replication are helicase and DNA polymerase. Helicase unwinds the DNA strand and DNA polymerase makes a copy.


What is the difference between the Helicase and DNA polymerase enzme?

The helicase in a way unzipps the wound DNA. DNA Polymerase then matches the nucleotide bases with free floating one so that A matches with T (or in RNA U) and G matches with C.. Creating two new strands of DNA and completing DNA replication.

DNA polymerase and helicase are alike how?

Both DNA polymerase and Helicase are:EnzymesCapable of binding double stranded DNAAble to break the hydrogen bonds between the nucleotide bases and hold the single strands apart


Does DNA polymerase breaks the hydrogen bonds between complementary base pairs during DNA replications?

no, it is the dna helicase


What are the four enzymes involved in DNA replication and repair?

DNA polymerase III DNA polymerase I DNA Ligase DNA Helicase


What is the purpose of helicase and DNA polymerase of replication?

Helicase will unwind the double stranded helical structure of DNA so that DNA polymerase can attach and synthesize a new DNA strand. This is the process of DNA repicaltion


What is the difference between the helicase enzyme and DNA polymerase enzyme?

Helicase splits the 3' and 5' Okazaki fragments, while the DNA polymerase attaches the "new" 3' nucleotide, with the "old" 5' nucleotide. As well as proofreading, or making sure that the bases are complementary in order to avoid mutations.


How is helicase enzyme diffrent from DNA polymerase enzyme?

hey so there is most definitely a difference helicase is an enzyme that unwinds DNA into two templates so replication can then occur while DNA polymerase three (iii) adds the nucleotides... andother DNA polymerase two (ii) replaces the rna primer with a DNA one .. cooL?
