Polymerase

Science / Genetics / Polymerase: Any enzyme that catalyzes the formation of dna or rna from deoxyribonucleotides or ribonucleotides.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Science / Biology / Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR): A method of amplifying or copying DNA fragments that is faster than cloning. The fragments are combined with DNA polymerase, nucleotides, and other components to form a mixture in which the DNA is cyc MORE

Dna Polymerase

Science / Biology / Dna Polymerase: In DNA replication, the enzyme that links the complementary nucleotides together to form the newly synthesized strand. MORE

Polymerase (DNA Or RNA)

Science / Genetics / Polymerase (DNA Or RNA): Enzymes that catalyze the synthesis of nucleic acids on preexisting nucleic acid templates, assembling rna from ribonucleotides or dna from deoxyribonucleotides. MORE

Rna Polymerase

Science / Biology / Rna Polymerase: During transcription, an enzyme that attaches to the promoter region of the DNA template, joins nucleotides to form the synthesized strand of RNA and detaches from the template when it reaches the ter MORE

Cdna

Science / Genetics / Cdna: Complementary dna produced from a rna template by the action of rna- dependent dna polymerase. MORE

Primer

Business / Construction / Primer: The first, base coat of paint when a paint job consists of two or more coats. A first coating formulated to seal raw surfaces and holding succeeding finish coats. MORE
