Replication Fork

The active region of DNA* replication where the two strands of DNA of double-stranded DNA helix are separated, and each each is used as a template to make its complimentary strand. The replication fork is formed by the helicase* enzyme which unwinds and separates the DNA double helix to allow polymerase enzymes access to each strand for replication.
