Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GINS4 Gene
The yeast heterotetrameric GINS complex is made up of Sld5, Psf1 (GINS1; MIM 610608), Psf2 (GINS2; MIM 610609), and Psf3 (GINS3; MIM 610610). The formation of the GINS complex is essential for the initiation of DNA replication in yeast and Xenopus egg extracts (Ueno et al., 2005 [PubMed 16287864]). See GINS1 for additional information about the GINS complex.[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GINS4 Gene
GINS4 (GINS Complex Subunit 4 (Sld5 Homolog)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. GO annotations related to this gene include 3-5 DNA helicase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GINS4 Gene
The GINS complex plays an essential role in the initiation of DNA replication, and progression of DNA replication forks. GINS4 is important for GINS complex assembly. GINS complex seems to bind preferentially to single-stranded DNA.
