    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • PcrA anchors itself to the template duplex using the 2B subdomain and reels in the lagging strand, extruding a single-stranded loop [Pubmed|20723756]
  • dismantles [protein|A44D4677FB70BE8F554BF1001A500F817C7DA95F|RecA] filaments [Pubmed|20723756]
  • Protein family

  • Paralogous protein(s)

  • [protein|B0789A727D9E3578FF1CB6162F365F45FADB0B3E|YjcD]
  • [SW|Domains]

  • intrinxically disordered C-terminal domain (for interaction with [SW|RNA polymerase]) [Pubmed|24147116]
  • Effectors of protein activity

  • unwinding of the double-stranded ICEBs1 DNA is stimulated by [protein|search|HelP] [Pubmed|23326247]
  • helicase activity is stimulated by interaction with [SW|RNA polymerase] [Pubmed|24147116]
