Termination of DNA replication: mechanism and importance
Dr A Gambus, Dr M Saponaro
6 January 2019
Cell division is the basis for the propagation of life and requires accurate duplication of all genetic information. DNA replication must be precisely regulated as unrepaired mistakes can change cell behaviour with potentially severe consequences, such as genetic disease, cancer and premature ageing.
