Steps of DNA Replication

DNA replication is the process of copying the DNA within our cells. This process involves RNA and several enzymes, including DNA polymerase and primase.


The cover image depicts RNA polymerase as a crab, with the small crab (upper right) symbolizing an elongating RNA polymerase moving along a string (i.e., DNA) and its claw, representing the clamp domain, closed. The central crab represents a paused polymerase. It is in a meditative state with its claws open, yet it keeps a grip on the string. Art by Oliver Hoeller.
