Clamp loaders orchestrate the switch from distributive to processive DNA synthesis. Their importance in cellular processes is underscored by their conservation across all forms of life. Here, we describe a new form of clamp loader from the archaeon Methanosarcina acetivorans. Unlike previously described archaeal clamp loaders, which are composed of one(More)
We describe a CCCH type of zinc finger domain in a replication protein A (RPA) homolog found in members of different lineages of the Euryarchaeota, a subdomain of Archaea. The zinc finger is characterized by CX(2)CX(8)CX(2)H, where X is any amino acid. Using MacRPA3, a representative of this new group of RPA in Methanosarcina acetivorans, we made two(More)
