DNA replicates in order for cells to divide, withy a parent cell divides giving each daughter cell the full DNA string in each nucleus. Without cell division, an organism cannot grow into a plant, a human or an animal. D... More »

DNA replication is a process in which DNA is duplicated so that it can be integrated into a new cell during cell division. The process produces two identical replicas of the DNA molecule from one original DNA molecule. I... More »

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 »

DNA replication takes place in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells and in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells, HowStuffWorks states. Reference explains that prokaryotes are organisms without a nucleus. More »

DNA replicates so that new cells can be created; the replication allows old or damaged cells to create replacement cells that support the life of the organism. DNA replication permits the new cells to have the same genet... 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 »

The primary purpose of DNA is to store hereditary information within the cells of all living things. It is a molecule that encodes the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living orga... More »
