GeneCards Summary for DBF4 Gene

DBF4 (DBF4 Zinc Finger) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and enzyme activator activity. An important paralog of this gene is DBF4B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DBF4 Gene

  • Regulatory subunit for CDC7 which activates its kinase activity thereby playing a central role in DNA replication and cell proliferation. Required for progression of S phase. The complex CDC7-DBF4A selectively phosphorylates MCM2 subunit at Ser-40 and Ser-53 and then is involved in regulating the initiation of DNA replication during cell cycle.
