Initiation of DNA Synthesis
All the polymerases studied have two basic features: (i) a phosphodiester bridge is formed between the 3’-phosphate group of a deoxyribonucleotide and the 5’-hydroxy1 group at the growing end of a DNA chain called primer DNA; the chain growth is 5’→ 3’; and (ii) each deoxynucleotide added to the chain is selected by base-pair matching to a DNA chain called template DNA.
