    • primed
  19. Process occurring in the lagging strand
    • a.      Primase forms primer
    • b.      DNA pol III adds DNA nucleotides to primer, forming first fragment
    • c.       After reaching next RNA primer, DNA pol III detaches
    • d.      Fragment two is primed and elongated, detaching upon contact of first fragment’s primer
