    DNA helicase continues to unwind the DNA forming a structure called the replication fork, which is named for the forked appearance of the two strands of DNA as they are unzipped apart. The process of breaking the hydrogen bonds between the nucleotide base pairs in double-stranded DNA requires energy.
