GeneCards Summary for HELQ Gene

HELQ (Helicase, POLQ-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is POLQ.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HELQ Gene

  • Single-stranded DNA-dependent ATPase and 5 to 3 DNA helicase (PubMed:11751861). Involved in the repair of DNA cross-links and double-strand break (DSB) resistance. Participates in FANCD2-mediated repair. Forms a complex with POLN polymerase that participates in homologous recombination (HR) repair and is essential for cellular protection against DNA cross-links (PubMed:19995904).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Hexamer (PubMed:11751861). Interacts with POLN (PubMed:19995904).
    Miscellaneous:
    • ATPase activity is strongly stimulated by single-stranded DNA. Presence of ATP and Mg cofactor are required for helicase activity allowing to unwind duplex oligonucleotides up to 60-70-mer. This helicase activity is stimulated by replication protein RPA that binds to unwound regions and inhibits re-annealing.
