dispersive replication A form of DNA replication in which the original DNA chain breaks and recombines in a random fashion before the double helix structure unwinds and separates to act as a template for messenger RNA synthesis. There is no evidence that it occurs in nature. Compare conservative replication; semiconservative replication.
