Summaries for MCM8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MCM8 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is one of the highly conserved mini-chromosome maintenance proteins (MCM) that are essential for the initiation of eukaryotic genome replication. The hexameric protein complex formed by the mini-chromosome maintenance proteins is a key component of the pre-replication complex and may be involved in the formation of replication forks and in the recruitment of other DNA replication related proteins. This protein contains the central domain that is conserved among the mini-chromosome maintenance proteins. The encoded protein may interact with other mini-chromosome maintenance proteins and play a role in DNA replication. This gene may be associated with length of reproductive lifespan and menopause. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for MCM8 Gene

MCM8 (Minichromosome Maintenance 8 Homologous Recombination Repair Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCM8 include Premature Ovarian Failure 10 and Cardiomyopathy, Familial Hypertrophic, 20. Among its related pathways are Telomere C-strand (Lagging Strand) Synthesis and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and magnesium chelatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MCM4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCM8 Gene

  • Component of the MCM8-MCM9 complex, a complex involved in homologous recombination repair following DNA interstrand cross-links and plays a key role during gametogenesis. The MCM8-MCM9 complex probably acts as a hexameric helicase downstream of the Fanconi anemia proteins BRCA2 and RAD51 and is required to process aberrant forks into homologous recombination substrates and to orchestrate homologous recombination with resection, fork stabilization and fork restart. May also play a non-essential for DNA replication: may be involved in the activation of the prereplicative complex (pre-RC) during G(1) phase by recruiting CDC6 to the origin recognition complex (ORC). Binds chromatin throughout the cell cycle.
