The active DNA-dependent ATPase A domain (ADAAD), a member of the SWI2/SNF2 family, has been shown to bind DNA in a structure-specific manner, recognizing DNA molecules possessing double-stranded to single-stranded transition regions leading to ATP hydrolysis. Extending these studies we have delineated the structural requirements of the DNA effector for(More)
Active DNA-dependent ATPase A Domain (ADAAD) is a SWI2/SNF2 protein that hydrolyzes ATP in the presence of stem-loop DNA that contains both double-stranded and single-stranded regions. ADAAD possesses the seven helicase motifs that are a characteristic feature of all the SWI2/SNF2 proteins present in yeast as well as mammalian cells. In addition, these(More)
Mutations and deletions in SMARCAL1, an SWI2/SNF2 protein, cause Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia (SIOD). SMARCAL1 preferentially binds to DNA molecules possessing double-stranded to single-stranded transition regions and mediates annealing helicase activity. The protein is critical for alleviating replication stress and maintaining genome integrity. In(More)
