How does RNA replication take place?

1 Answer

The DNA strands unwind and complemetary of RNAs are synthesized.


  1. First of all the DNA strand unwind and then replicate in semiconservative mode of replication i.e., each strand has one new strand and one old strand.
  2. The complementary nitrogenous bases of new strands are joined with hydrogen bond. The adenine joins with thymine and guanine with cytocine.
  3. Like this the single stranded RNAs are also synthesized on the complementary nitrogenous bases on DNA template, but here uracil is found. Thank you
