    During DNA replication, DNA Polymerase matches up the pairs of nitrogenous bases, prepared by the RNA primer (made by the enzyme RNA Primase)to create a new segment of DNA. They are matched to the bases on the parent strand. This occurs on both the leading strand and the lagging strand of replication.

    After that, DNA Ligase, another enzyme, links (or "glues") the bases together. DNA polymerase only mathces the bases, it does not link them.
