10.5. The Synthesis of the DNA

10.5.1. After the two parent strands are pulled apart, there are two new daughter stands being made. The leading strand is made continuously because the parent strand it is coming off of is in the 3' to 5' direction. A short piece of RNA called a primer sticks to he beginning of the parent strand in order to start the new growing strand. The enzyme polymerse is then responsible for bringing in he new nucleotides to the growing 3' end. In he lagging strand, The DNA is made in pieces, each primed separately. This is because he replication fork is like a zipper and unzipped in the opposite direction of DNA synthesis.
