Function of taq DNA polymerase in PCR

The function of Taq DNA polymerase in PCR reaction is to amplify the DNA for the production of multiple copies of DNA. Taq DNA polymerase is a thermostable DNA polymerase which can also work at a higher temperature. In this article, we will discuss about the DNA polymerase and its function, Taq DNA polymerase, the function

Prokaryotic DNA replication: Replication class 2

How does replication occur in prokaryotes? In 1963, J Cairns reported the process of replication in E.coli bacteria by autoradiography. Replication is a process in which a DNA molecule is copied. From thedouble-stranded DNA, two daughter dsDNA is generated and is transferred to two different daughter cells. Before proceeding to this article please read the General

DNA Replication class 1: General process of DNA replication

“Replication is an enzyme governed process, in which new DNA molecule is formed by the process of semi-conservative DNA replication.”  DNA replication is a process in which new DNA is formed (copying DNA). Four new single strands of DNA (2 double helix), are generated in a semiconservative manner of DNA replication. The basic mechanism of
