Term Information [More information on DNA translocase activity]

Accession
GO:0015616
Name
DNA translocase activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
None
Definition
Catalysis of the reaction: ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate, to drive movement along a single- or double-stranded DNA molecule. Source: PMID:17631491, GOC:mah, PMID:16428451
Comment
Note that some gene products that possess DNA translocase activity, such as members of the FtsK/SpoIIIE family, can be fixed in place by interactions with other components of the cell; the relative movement between the protein and DNA bound to it results in movement of the DNA within the cell, often across a membrane.
