Depending upon the chemical nature of the template (DNA or RNA) and the nature of nucleic acids synthesized from it (DNA or RNA), list the types of nucleic acid polymerases.
There are two types of nucleic acid polymerases:
a. DNA-dependent DNA polymerase
b. DNA-dependent RNA polymerase
DNA-dependent DNA polymerase use a DNA template to synthesize a new DNA strand and DNA-dependent RNA polymerase use a DNA template to synthesize a new RNA strand.
