Domain

DNA primase, catalytic core, N-terminal (IPR013264)

Short name: DNA_primase_core_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This is the N-terminal, catalytic core domain of DNA primases. DNA primase (EC:2.7.7) is a nucleotidyltransferase which synthesizes the oligoribonucleotide primers required for DNA replication on the lagging strand of the replication fork. It can also prime the leading strand and has been implicated in cell division [PMID: 8294018].
