Why would DNA synthesis occur in both directions from an origin of replication?

▸ Leading strands extend from one side of the origin while lagging strand extends from the other side of the origin.

▸ DNA is a double helix and DNA synthesis is 5' to 3'.

▸ DNA direction synthesis is random and sometimes extends in one direction from an origin of replication and sometimes in the other direction.

▸ Replication-associated proteins bind at two replication forks.

▸ It allows DNA strands to overlap when reaching another origin of replication.
