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
