Minichromosome maintenance (mcm) is an effective genetic assay for mutants defective in DNA replication. Two classes of mcm mutants have been identified using this screen: those that differentially affect the activities of certain autonomously replicating sequences (ARSs) and those that uniformly affect the activities of all ARSs. The ARS-specific MCM genes are essential for the initiation of DNA replication. Among these are members of the MCM2-7 family that encode subunits of the preinitiation… CONTINUE READING
