a mini-chromosome maintenance protein, essential for the initiation of eukaryotic genome replication. Allows DNA to undergo a single round of replication per cell cycle. Required for the entry in S phase and for cell division. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA repair, damage; DNA-binding; EC 3.6.4.-; EC 4.2.99.-; Helicase; Nuclear receptor co-regulator; RNA-binding
Molecular Function: 5'-deoxyribose-5-phosphate lyase activity; damaged DNA binding; double-stranded DNA binding; double-stranded telomeric DNA binding; protein binding; protein C-terminus binding
Biological Process: DNA ligation; DNA recombination; double-strand break repair via nonhomologous end joining; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of interferon type I production; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; protein heterotetramerization; regulation of smooth muscle cell proliferation; telomere maintenance
