proteína desenrolladora del ADN
proteínas desenrolladoras de ADN
Scope note: Proteínas que promueven el desenrollamiento del ADN bicatenario durante la replicación, uniéndose cooperativamente a regiones monocatenarias del ADN o a regiones cortas de ADN bicatenario sometidas a una apertura transitoria. Además, las ADN helicasas son ATPasas dependientes del ADN que aprovechan la energía libre de la hidrólisis del ATP para desplazar hebras de ADN.

Scope note: Proteins that catalyze the unwinding of duplex DNA during replication by binding cooperatively to single-stranded regions of DNA or to short regions of duplex DNA that are undergoing transient opening. In addition DNA helicases are DNA-dependent ATPases that harness the free energy of ATP hydrolysis to translocate DNA strands.
