Title: DNA polymerases at the eukaryotic fork-20 years later.

Authors: Pavlov, Youri I; Shcherbakova, Polina V

Published In Mutat Res, (2010 Mar 01)

Abstract: Function of the eukaryotic genome depends on efficient and accurate replication of anti-parallel DNA strands. Eukaryotic DNA polymerases have different properties adapted to perform a wide spectrum of DNA transactions. Here we focus on major players in the bulk replication, DNA polymerases of the B-family. We review the organization of the replication fork in eukaryotes in a historical perspective, analyze contemporary models and propose a new integrative model of the fork.
