PICH DNA helicase that acts as an essential component of the spindle assembly checkpoint. Contributes to the mitotic checkpoint by recruiting MAD2 to kinetochores and monitoring tension on centromeric chromatin. Acts as a tension sensor that associates with catenated DNA which is stretched under tension until it is resolved during anaphase. Functions as ATP-dependent DNA translocase. Can promote Holliday junction branch migration (in vitro). Belongs to the SNF2/RAD54 helicase family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
