Chemicals and Drugs [D] » Enzymes and Coenzymes [D08] » Enzymes » Isomerases » DNA Helicases » RecQ Helicases
A family of structurally-related DNA helicases that play an essential role in the maintenance of genome integrity. RecQ helicases were originally discovered in E COLI and are highly conserved across both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. Genetic mutations that result in loss of RecQ helicase activity gives rise to disorders that are associated with CANCER predisposition and premature aging. MeSH
