  • DNA clamp
    A DNA clamp, also known as a sliding clamp, is a protein fold that serves as a processivity-promoting factor in DNA replication.
  • Helicase
    Helicases are a class of enzymes vital to all living organisms.
  • DNA polymerase
    In molecular biology, DNA polymerases are enzymes that synthesize DNA molecules from deoxyribonucleotides, the building blocks of DNA.
  • The Selfish Gene
    The Selfish Gene is a 1976 book on evolution by Richard Dawkins, in which Dawkins builds upon the principal theory of George C.
  • Taq polymerase
    Taq polymerase /ˌtæk ˈpɒlᵻməreɪz/ is a thermostable DNA polymerase named after the thermophilic bacterium Thermus aquaticus from which it was originally isolated by Chien et al.
  • Single-stranded binding protein
    Single-stranded binding proteins (not to be confused with the E. coli protein, Single-strand DNA-binding protein, SSB) are a class of proteins that have been identified in both viruses and organisms from bacteria to humans.
  • DnaB helicase
    DnaB helicase is an enzyme in bacteria which opens the replication fork during DNA replication.
  • Retinoblastoma protein
    The retinoblastoma protein (protein name abbreviated pRb; gene name abbreviated RB or RB1) is a tumor suppressor protein that is dysfunctional in several major cancers.
  • Telomerase
    Telomerase, also called terminal transferase, is a ribonucleoprotein that adds a species-dependent telomere repeat sequence to the 3' end of telomeres.
  • DNA gyrase
    The unique ability of gyrase to introduce negative supercoils into DNA is what allows bacterial DNA to have free negative supercoils.
  • HolA
    In molecular biology, holA is a gene that encodes the δ (delta) subunit of DNA polymerase III in E.
  • HolC
    In E. coli and other bacteria, holC is a gene that encodes the chi subunit of DNA polymerase III.
  • Single-strand DNA-binding protein
    Single-strand DNA-binding protein (SSB) is a protein, 178 amino acids long, found in Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria, that binds to single-stranded regions of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
  • Polbase
    Polbase (DNA Polymerase Database) is an open repository of DNA polymerase information.
  • Repressor lexA
    Repressor LexA or LexA is a transcriptional repressor (EC 3.4.21.88) that represses SOS response genes coding primarily for error-prone DNA polymerases, DNA repair enzymes and cell division inhibitors.
  • Minichromosome maintenance
    Minichromosome maintenance protein complex (MCM) is a eukaryotic DNA helicase complex required for the process of DNA replication, specifically the formation and elongation of the replication fork.
  • Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life
    Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life is a 2008 book by popular science writer Carl Zimmer.
  • DnaD
    DnaD is a 232 amino acid long protein that is part of the primosome involved in prokaryotic DNA replication.
  • Vent DNA polymerase
    Vent polymerase is a thermostable DNA polymerase used for the polymerase chain reaction.
  • HolE
    In E. coli and other bacteria, holE is a gene that encodes the theta subunit of DNA polymerase III.
  • DNA ligase
    In molecular biology, DNA ligase is a specific type of enzyme, a ligase, (EC 6.5.1.1) that facilitates the joining of DNA strands together by catalyzing the formation of a phosphodiester bond.
  • OriDB
    The DNA Replication Origin Database (OriDB) provides access to collated published datasets that have predicted and/or confirmed the location of replication origins.
  • Nucleic acid nomenclature
    Molecular biologists use several shorthand terms when referring to nucleic acid molecules, such as DNA and RNA, collectively referred to as nucleic acid nomenclature.
  • DnaA
    DnaA is a protein that activates initiation of DNA replication in bacteria.
  • Pwo DNA polymerase
    Pwo polymerase is a thermostable DNA polymerase used for the polymerase chain reaction.
  • Cdc6
    Cdc6, or cell division cycle 6, is a protein in eukaryotic cells that is studied in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
  • DnaE
    dnaE, the gene product of dnaE, is the catalytic α subunit of DNA polymerase III, acting as a DNA helicase.
  • DnaI
    DnaI is a protein that is part of the primosome involved in prokaryotic DNA replication.
  • DnaH
    dnaH is a gene involved in DNA replication.
  • DnaS
    dnaS is a gene involved in DNA replication.
  • DnaX
    DnaX is the gene that codes for the τ and γ subunits of the DNA clamp loader of prokaryotes.
