I have been looking into the concept of replication dynamics and was wondering why collapsing but not stalling leads to a DNA break.

    $\begingroup$ I recommend improving this post by explaining to us what "collapsing" and "stalling" mean. What context are you talking about? How do you know that collapsing but not stalling leads to a DNA break? $\endgroup$ – julianstanley Mar 23 '18 at 19:04

Stalling precedes collapsing. And collapsing precedes breaking. Hence, both stalling and collapsing precede, and lead to, breaking; but not every stalling leads to collapsing, and not every collapsing leads to breaking.
