Figure 5-20A cycle of loading and unloading of DNA polymerase and the clamp protein on the lagging strand

The association of the clamp loader with the lagging-strand polymerase shown here is for illustrative purposes only; in reality, the clamp loader is carried along with the replication fork in a complex that includes both the leading-strand and lagging-strand DNA polymerases (see Figure 5-22).
