conservative replication A hypothesis suggesting that DNA replication occurs by one DNA molecule initiating the synthesis of a new molecule while remaining intact. The preferred theory (see semiconservative replication) proposes that the DNA molecule divides to provide two templates for synthesizing the other half of the molecule. Compare dispersive replication.
