DNA helicase, UvrD/REP type (IPR000212)

Short name: DNA_helicase_UvrD/REP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Members of this family are helicases that catalyse ATP dependent unwinding of double stranded DNA to single stranded DNA. The family includes both Rep and UvrD helicases [PMID: 21428912]. The Rep family helicases are composed of four structural domains [PMID: 9288744]. The Rep proteins function as dimers.
