According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the primary role of DNA polymerases is to replicate the DNA of an organism, accurately and efficiently, during cell division. Additionally, polymerases play... More »

The function of DNA polymerase is to replicate, proofread and repair DNA. Several DNA polymerases exist, but DNA polymerase I, or Pol I, and DNA polymerase III, or Pol III, are the main ones involved in DNA replication. More »

The most basic difference between DNA polymerase and RNA polymerase is that DNA polymerase is used in the replication of DNA, while the RNA polymerase transcribes DNA to RNA. DNA polymerase also makes fewer mistakes than... More »

Agarose gel is used in the process of electrophoresis, which separates fragments of DNA according to their structure and dimensions DNA molecules are generally digested with restriction enzymes, and agarose gel electroph... More »

Once the DNA is separated into two strands, an RNA primer is laid down to give the new strand a place to build from so that the new enzymes can mate up to the exposed bases of the DNA and continue to build until the stra... More »

DNA polymerase II is a type of DNA polymerase: a category of enzymes that synthesize identical copies of existing DNA, allowing dividing cells to pass this genetic information on to their daughter cells. DNA polymerase I... More »
