What is the product from DNA replication?

1 Answer


In semiconservative replication, Two daughter DNA. Each containing one strand from their mother DNA.


As DNA replication is the process where DNA molecules replicates, this usually initiates when a DNA double helix unzips and unwinds when the hydrogen bond between them breaks. There are free DNA nucleotides in the nucleus which pairs up with the complementary bases of these exposed strands and sugar phosphate backbone is formed by DNA polymerase giving two DNA as products each containing a strand of the old DNA.

This video provides a brief summary of this process using the DNA Workshop activity from PBS.
