A DNA sequence at which helicase unwinds the DNA double helix and DNA polymerase binds to initiate DNA replication.
The nucleotide sequence where DNA replication is initiated. Determines the specific position on a DNA molecule where DNA replication begins.
A region of DNA necessary for the initiation of replication.
A specific sequence of bases in a nucleic acid molecule to which the enzymes responsible for replicating the nucleic acid bind to initiate the copying process.
A site at which DNA replication is initiated. There is only one in bacterial chromosomes, but numerous origins in eukaryotic chromosomal DNA.
A site on a DNA molecule where replication initiates.
The point of specific sequence at which DNA replication is initiated.
The origin of replication (also called the replication origin) is a unique DNA sequence at which DNA replication is initiated. DNA replication may proceed from this point bidirectionally or unidirectionally.
