A G C A New G T A The two new DNA molecules contain an old strand and a new strand. Cell Replication Cell replication involves the synthesis of daughter DNA molecules that are identical to the parental DNA. At cell division, the cell must copy its genome with a high degree of fidelity. Each strand of the DNA molecule acts as a template for synthesizing a new strand. 9 illustrate replication by base pairing and show the formation of the two new strands. The DNA molecule consists of two large strands of nucleic acid that are intertwined to form a double helix.

5). The channel between the two membranes of the ER is different than the cytosol and is isolated from it. The ER cannot be separated from the cell as an isolated entity in the laboratory. During mechanical homogenization, the structure of the ER is disrupted and reforms into small spherical particles called microsomes. The ER is classified as either rough (granular) or smooth (agranular). The granularity or lack of granularity is determined by the presence or absence of ribosomes. Rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER), so named because it is studded with ribosomes, abounds in cells where protein synthesis is a primary function.
