Distinct pools of proliferating cell nuclear antigen associated to DNA replication sites interact with the p125 subunit of DNA polymerase delta or DNA ligase I.
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) plays an essential role in DNA replication, repair, and cell cycle control. PCNA is a homotrimeric ring that, when encircling DNA, is not easily extractable. Consequently, the dynamics of protein-protein interactions established by PCNA at DNA replication sites is not well understood. We have used DNase I to release DNA-bound PCNA together with replication proteins including the p125-catalytic subunit of DNA polymerase delta (p125-pol delta), DNA liga...Expand abstract
