Mechanism of polymerase collision release from sliding clamps on the lagging strand.

Abstract

Replicative polymerases are tethered to DNA by sliding clamps for processive DNA synthesis. Despite attachment to a sliding clamp, the polymerase on the lagging strand must cycle on and off DNA for each Okazaki fragment. In the 'collision release' model, the lagging strand polymerase collides with the 5' terminus of an earlier completed fragment, which… (More)
