Comments [?]

Function Forms the sliding-clamp-loader together with the small subunit. Functions as an ATPase enzyme. The clamp loader holds the clamp in an open conformation and places it onto the DNA. 4 ATP molecules must bind to the sliding-clamp-loader before the latter can open the sliding clamp. ATP hydrolysis triggers the detachment of the sliding clamp from the sliding-clamp-loader, freeing the sliding clamp to track along DNA.
Subunit The sliding-clamp-loader consists of 4 large subunits and 1 small subunit. Interacts with the sliding clamp; this interaction allows the sliding-clamp-loader to open the sliding clamp. Part of the replicase complex that includes the DNA polymerase, the polymerase clamp, the clamp loader complex, the single-stranded DNA binding protein, the primase, the helicase and the helicase assembly factor.
Similarity Belongs to the Tevenvirinae sliding-clamp-loader large subunit family.
