Motion in Polymerase Processivity Factor PCNA [pcna]

[ jump to morphs ]

Classification Suspected Subunit Motion, Not Involving Allostery [S-n-1]

1PLQ Conformation 1 [ PartsList ]

PCNA subunits are arranged in a ring-like trimer, which is believed to clamp around DNA. For such a clamp to attach and unattach to DNA motion of the subunits is necessary.
