Processivity of DNA polymerases: two mechanisms, one goal.


Replicative DNA polymerases are highly processive enzymes that polymerize thousands of nucleotides without dissociating from the DNA template. The recently determined structure of the Escherichia coli bacteriophage T7 DNA polymerase suggests a unique mechanism that underlies processivity, and this mechanism may generalize to other replicative polymerases.

Using Polbase tables:


Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).


It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
