Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

3'-5' DNA helicase that has DNA strand annealing activity; helicase activity is stimulated by fork structure and 3'-tail length of substrates; acts with Rad4p in nucleotide-excision repair; belongs to the widely conserved RecQ family of proteins which are involved in maintaining genomic integrity; similar to the human RecQ4p implicated in Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS) [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002699]


Chromosome IV: 1,039,728-1,042,961 forward strand.
