The Green-Tao Theorem proved that the sequence of these numbers contained arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions. The Sophie-Germain variety of these is such that both x and 2x+1 are these kind of numbers. Wilson's Theorem states that (n-1)! is congruent to -1 mod n whenever n is this kind of number. The Mersenne variety of these are of the form 2^n - 1, where n itself is also one of these. There is notably only one even example of these; the rest are odd.

This process is made more efficient by a sliding clamp protein that prevents its central enzyme from dissociating from its substrate.
This process is made more efficient by a sliding clamp protein that prevents its central enzyme from dissociating from its substrate. In prokaryotes this process begins at ori sites. The mechanism of this process was determined by growing E. coli in a nitrogen-15 medium. This process was shown to be semiconservative by Meselson and Stahl and cannot occur without a primer. Okazaki fragments form on the lagging strand during this process since it only occurs in the "5-prime" to "3-prime" direction. This process that occurs during the S phase requires enzymes like ligase, helicase and DNA polymerase. For 10 points, name this process which creates a copy of the genome.

The song that mentions this city in its title has a first verse that mixes up gorillas with another ape, creating the entertaining but incorrect phrase “silverback orangutans,” and the song’s title, which mentions this city, was a phrase heard on the news by the rapper of that verse that he thought he could incorporate into a song well.

This author’s only play, Politian, sets the Beauchamp–Sharp Tragedy in 16th Century Rome, and his longest poem is based upon stories from the Koran.
This author’s only play, Politian, sets the Beauchamp–Sharp Tragedy in 16th Century Rome, and his longest poem is based upon stories from the Koran. This author's works include one in which a court jester convinces a king and his cabinet to dress as orangutans for a masquerade before setting them all on fire and escaping; one in which an injured narrator recounts the process of the creation of a portrait of an artist’s wife; and one in which a visitor to a mental institution is treated to a feast led by the patients of the facility, who he later finds out have tied up the staff and tortured them. This author, inspired by the "Great Moon Hoax," tried to convince the public that Monck Mason had travelled across the Atlantic ocean in a hot air balloon in only three days, but the story was quickly found out to be fabricated. Other works of short fiction by this author include one in which the narrator is tortured by the title strange devices as a victim of the Spanish Inquisition; one in which the narrator's family crest involves a foot crushing a snake, explaining the mistreatment of his wine-loving adversary; and one in which a prince and his guests confront a personification of disease, ending in their demise. For ten points, name this author of works such as “The Cask of Amontillado,” “The Masque of the Red Death,” and “The Pit and the Pendulum.”

This band’s predecessor Xero changed its name as a nod to a local landmark in 1998.
