The synthesis of A. DNA molecule being synthesised is very long
B. DNA-dependent DNA polymerase catalyse polymerisation only in one direction (5' → 3')
C. It is more efficient process
D. It help to use DNA ligase
• This occurs due to the addition of the deoxyribonucleotides to the free 3’ end of the template strand.
• Thus the replication on 5' → 3' is discontinuous.
• However the discontinuous strands synthesised are joined using DNA ligase enzyme.
