What is kornberg enzyme?

Mahi said: (Dec 2, 2012)  
Kornborg is an another name of DNA-Plimerase 1.

Nini said: (Apr 26, 2013)  
Kornberg enzyme is a DNA polymerase 1 which lacks 5'-3' exonuclease activity.

What is meant by exonucelease?

Nanoshe Taye said: (May 1, 2017)  
It is pol III which is involved in chromosome replication and it possesses 3'_5' and 5'_3'. And pol I is related to RNA primer removal.

So how that the answer be Kornberg enzyme (pol I)?

What is the function of Kornberg enzyme?

Muskan said: (Aug 12, 2019)  
Pol I possesses four enzymatic activities:

A 5' --> 3' (forward) DNA-Dependent DNA polymerase activity, requiring a 3' primer site and a template strand.
A 3' --> '5' (reverse) exonuclease activity that mediates proofreading.
A 5' --> '3' (forward) exonuclease activity mediating nick translation during DNA repair.
A 5' --> '3' (forward) RNA-Dependent DNA polymerase activity.

DNA pol 1.

5' to 3' exonuclease --> removal of primer.
5' to 3' polymerization ----> add nucleotides in place of primer(removed).
3' to 5'exonculease----> proofreading of this newly synthesized segment.
