Ring-shaped, oligomeric translocases are multisubunit enzymes that couple the hydrolysis of Nucleoside TriPhosphates (NTPs) to directed movement along extended biopolymer substrates. These motors help unwind nucleic acid duplexes, unfold protein chains, and shepherd nucleic acids between cellular and/or viral compartments. Substrates are translocated through a central pore formed by a circular array of catalytic subunits. Cycles of nucleotide binding, hydrolysis, and product release help… CONTINUE READING
