Summaries for GINS3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GINS3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein subunit of the GINS heterotetrameric complex, which is essential for the initiation of DNA replication and replisome progression in eukaryotes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GINS3 Gene

GINS3 (GINS Complex Subunit 3 (Psf3 Homolog)) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GINS3 Gene

  • The GINS complex plays an essential role in the initiation of DNA replication, and progression of DNA replication forks. GINS complex seems to bind preferentially to single-stranded DNA.
