Rna Primers

Some articles on rna primers:

Okazaki Fragments - Enzymes Involved in Fragment Formation - Primase
... Primase adds RNA primers onto the lagging strand, which allows synthesis of Okazaki fragments from 5’ to 3’ ... However, Primase creates RNA primers at a much lower rate than that at which DNA polymerase synthesizes DNA on the leading strand ... on the lagging strand also has to be continually recycled to construct Okazaki fragments following RNA primers ...
