Assessment 2 - Drag the functions to match with their respective enzymes

DNA replication will require various enzymes with specific functions to catalyse the different steps.

Please match the enzymes with their respective functions.

DNA helicase
DNA ligase
DNA polymerase
DNA primase
Flap endonuclease (FEN)
a type of RNA polymerase that generates RNA primers
synthesize new DNA molecules by adding nucleotides to leading and lagging DNA strands
unwinds and separates double stranded DNA by breaking hydrogen bonds between nucleotide pairs in DNA
an enzyme that adds species-dependent repeat sequences at the end of the chromosomes of most eukaryotes
joins DNA fragments together by forming phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides
an endonuclease enzyme that catalyze the cleavage of RNA primer from Okazaki fragment
group of enzymes that remove nucleotide bases from the end of a DNA chain
