In eukaryotes, DNA replication origins are activated in the late G1 phase of cell cycle, in which Origin Recognition Complex recruits the helicase core Mcm2-7 onto DNA and assemble an inactive double-hexamer. The Mcm2-7 double-hexamer is converted to two active CMG (Cdc45-Mcm2-7-GINS) helicases at the G1-to-S transition. And in the S phase, the CMG helicases works with DNA polymerases, primases... More >
