An RNA polymerase that forms oligoribonucleotide primers in the 5' to 3' direction. During DNA replication, primase primes the RNA-DNA sequences that become the Okazaki fragments.
An enzyme that creates an RNA primer for initiation of DNA replication.
The RNA polymerase enzyme that synthesizes RNA primers during bacterial DNA replication.
A specialized RNA polymerase that synthesizes short stretches of RNA used as primers for DNA synthesis.
an enzyme that generates an RNA sequence that serves as a starting point or primer for synthesis of the new DNA chain
a replicative polymerase
An DNA-dependent RNA polymerase function that synthesizes a short RNA primer used during DNA replication by DNA polymerase. Primase does not require a primer, only a template.
An enzyme that makes RNA primers during DNA replication.
a enzyme which adds RNA primer to the beginning of a new strand (one primer on the leading strand and one primer per Okazaki fragment.
DNA primase is a form of RNA polymerase and a product of the dna G gene. In bacteria, primase binds to the DNA helicase forming a complex called the primosome. Primase is activated by DNA helicase where it then synthesizes a short RNA primer approximately 11 Â±1 nucleotides long, to which new nucleotides can be added by DNA polymerase.
