    at STAGE
  • a MCM domain found in DNA-dependent ATPases required for the initiation of eukaryotic DNA replication
    interspecies homolog to yeast S.cerevisiae replication Mcm7 (minichromosome maintenance mutant)
    homolog to murine Mcmd7
    homolog to Drosophila Mcm7
    homolog to C.elegans Mcm7
    intraspecies homolog to cell division cycle 47 (CDC47)
  • MCM family
  • CATEGORY DNA associated
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
  • in G1 of the two-cell stage, both nuclei had salt-resistant ORC2 and MCM7
  • basic FUNCTION
  • participating in the cell cycle control of genome duplication
  • acting as a factor allowing the DNA to undergo a single round of replication per cell cycle
  • required for DNA replication and cell proliferation
  • required for S-phase checkpoint activation upon
  • UV-induced damage
  • plays a direct role in the transmission of DNA damage signals from active replication forks to the S-phase checkpoint machinery in cells
  • DNA replication protein that is essential for initiation of DNA replication and maintenance of genomic integrity
  • involved in prostate cancer progression, growth and invasion
  • independent prognostic factor for human colorectal cancer
  • having an essential role for DNA replication
  • during S phase, functions as part of the replicative helicase but within the pre-replication complex MCM7 is inactive
  • having a role in establishment of bidirectional replication forks
  • during S phase MCM7 functions as part of the replicative helicase but within the pre-replication, MCM7 is inactive
  • is one of the pivotal DNA replication licensing factors in controlling DNA synthesis and cell entry into S phase
  • is an essential component of DNA replication licensing complex
  • MCM7 is likely a critical RNA splicing factor
  • plays a critical role in the initiation of gene replication
  • as a result of MCM7 overexpression, CEP68 was targeted for ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation, thereby rendering centrosome splitting
  • LMNB2 interaction with MCM7 promotes non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) progression
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell cycle
    nucleotide, replication
    nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    text cell cycle control
  • signaling cascade in which EGFR enhances MCM7 phosphorylation and DNA replication through LYN phosphorylation in human cancer cells
  • a component
  • CDC45/MCM2-7/GINS (CMG) complex, a candidate for the eukaryotic DNA replication fork helicase
    DNA binding
    small molecule nucleotide,
  • ATP
  • protein
  • histone H3
  • MCM8
  • interacts with the ATR-ATRIP complex, and with RAD17
  • interacting with CDKN1B
  • is a novel RAD17-interacting protein
  • interaction with EIF3E (proteasome inhibition strengthens interaction between both proteins and EIF3E stabilizes MCM7)
  • interacting with ARHGEF5 and TIPIN, both of which are involved in regulation of DNA replication fork progression
  • CCNA2 and MCM7 interact in the chromatin fraction (interaction with Mcm7 is essential for the function of cyclin A in promoting S-phase entry)
  • MCM7 interacts with the receptor for activated protein kinase C 1 (RACK1), a protein kinase C (PKC) adaptor
  • NCOA4 is a minichromosome maintenance 7 (MCM7)-interacting protein that is able to control DNA replication
  • MCM7 binds SF3B3, and the binding motif is located in the N terminus (amino acids 221-248) of MCM7
  • directly complexes with CEP68 and VHL
  • LMNB2 binds to the C-terminus of MCM7, and competes with the binding of the tumor suppressor retinoblastoma (RB1) protein
