Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA replication origin binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and histone binding activity. Predicted to contribute to 3'-5' DNA helicase activity and single-stranded DNA helicase activity. Involved in DNA unwinding involved in DNA replication; cellular response to interleukin-4; and nucleosome assembly. Localizes to the nuclear origin of replication recognition complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 70. Orthologous to human MCM2 (minichromosome maintenance complex component 2).
