Where does DNA replication happen in mitosis?
Replication occurs during the synthesis (S) stage. This is so that the cell is ready to divide by mitosis at the end of interphase.
Is mitosis the same as DNA replication?
Mitosis only separates the newly replicated chromosomes; DNA replication does not occur during mitosis. The big problem with eukaryotes is that they have to replicate linear chromosomes with special ends called telomeres.
At what stage does DNA replication occur?
In which stage DNA replication takes place?
In the eukaryotic cell cycle, chromosome duplication occurs during “S phase” (the phase of DNA synthesis) and chromosome segregation occurs during “M phase” (the mitosis phase).
Where does DNA replication occur in a cell?
What occurs during DNA replication?
DNA is made up of a double helix of two complementary strands. During replication, these strands are separated. Most prominently, DNA polymerase synthesizes the new strands by adding nucleotides that complement each (template) strand. DNA replication occurs during the S-stage of interphase.
