Ribosomes and DNA replication - BIOL 5Watch
Complete the table with a tick if the statement is true, and across if the statement is incorrect.
The statement was "Ribosomes are required in DNA replication in living rganisms"
I put a tick. The answer was a cross indicating that ribosomes are not required. This is confusing me, as I thought the mRNA exited the nucleus and traveled to the ribosomes to be translated, or am I wrong?
Here is a screenshot of the question:
You are correct that the ribosomes are involved in translation, but this is the process for protein synthesis, not DNA replication. Technically, ribosomes are not necessary for the actual semi-conservative replication of the DNA strand.
DNA replication, we are talking mitosis?
That makes sense then! Thank you!
