Minichromosome Maintenance Proteins
MCM Protein Complex
MCM2 7 Complex
MCM2 7 Helicase
Maintenance Proteins, Minichromosome
A family of proteins that were originally identified in SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE as being essential for maintaining the structure of minichromosomes00. They form into a protein complex that has helicase activity and is involved in a variety of DNA-related functions including replication elongation, RNA transcription, chromatin remodeling, and genome stability.
