    text
  • localizes in the nucleus together with other ORC subunits and also associates with chromatin
  • basic FUNCTION
  • coordinating chromosome replication and segregation with cytokinesis
  • implicated in many cellular activities, including DNA replication, transcriptional control, heterochromatin assembly, centromere and telomere function
  • necessary during mitosis for the abscission stage of cytokinesis
  • may participate in positioning of ORC at the origins of DNA replication similar to the role of TFIIB in positioning transcription preinitiation complex at the promoter
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • one of the six subunits of the origin recognition complex
  • essential component for replication initiation, although its functions vary in different eukaryotic species
  • INTERACTION
    DNA binding to autonomously replication sequence (ARS) consensus sequence (ACS)
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • interaction of CDT1 with ORCs is involved in the formation of the prereplicative complex, rather than in regulation of the activity of ORCs
  • connection between ORCs and chromatin structure via the Set1 complex
  • ORC6 not only interacts with ORC1-ORC5 but also with the initiation factor CDC6
