Function
DNA polymerase III is a complex, multichain enzyme responsible for most of the replicative synthesis in bacteria. The epsilon subunit contain the editing function and is a proofreading 3'-5' exonuclease (PubMed:6340117). Contacts both the beta sliding clamp (dnaN) and the polymerase subunit (dnaE), stabilizing their interaction (PubMed:26499492). UniProt

Subunit Structure
In a ternary complex this subunit contacts both the beta sliding clamp (dnaN) and the polymerase subunit (dnaE) (PubMed:26499492). The DNA polymerase III holoenzyme complex contains at least 10 different subunits organized into 3 functionally essential subassemblies: the Pol III core, the beta sliding clamp processivity factor and the clamp-loading complex. The Pol III core (subunits alpha, epsilon and theta) contains the polymerase and the 3'-5' exonuclease proofreading activities (PubMed:6340117). The polymerase is tethered to the template via the dimeric beta sliding clamp processivity factor. The clamp loader (also called gamma complex) assembles the beta sliding clamp onto the primed template and plays a central role in the organization and communication at the replication fork. The clamp-loading complex contains delta, delta', psi and chi, and 3 copies of either or both of two different DnaX proteins, gamma and tau. The DNA replisome complex has a single clamp loader (3 tau and 1 each of delta, delta', psi and chi subunits) which binds 3 Pol III cores (1 core on the leading strand and 2 on the lagging strand) each with a beta sliding clamp dimer. Additional proteins in the replisome are other copies of gamma, psi and chi, Ssb, DNA helicase and RNA primase (PubMed:20413500, PubMed:22157955). UniProt

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
