Linear DNA replication takes place in eukaryotic chromosomes

Because of the semiconservative nature of DNA replication, a double-stranded DNA molecule must unwind to expose the bases that act as a template for the assembly of new polynucleotide strands, which are made complementary and antiparallel to the template strands. The raw materials from which new DNA molecules are synthesized are deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs), each consisting of a deoxyribose sugar and a base (a nucleoside)
