Default DNA Polymerase Mnemonic

Never can keep these straight.

DNA polymerase ThrEEEEEEEE --> EEEEEElongates strand 5' --> 3' (normal way to synthesize)
- and ProofREEEEEEads 3' --> 5' (think of it backing up, also is the normal way to read a DNA strand)

DNA polymerase One. There can only be one type of nucleic acid in this DNA strand. Degrades RNA primer and replaces it with DNA.
