Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P12004: 30
Auxiliary protein of DNA polymerase delta and is involved in the control of eukaryotic DNA replication by increasing the polymerase's processibility during elongation of the leading strand. Induces a robust stimulatory effect on the 3'-5' exonuclease and 3'-phosphodiesterase, but not apurinic-apyrimidinic (AP) endonuclease, APEX2 activities. Has to be loaded onto DNA in order to be able to stimulate APEX2. Plays a key role in DNA damage response (DDR) by being conveniently positioned at the replication fork to coordinate DNA replication with DNA repair and DNA damage tolerance pathways (PubMed:24939902). Acts as a loading platform to recruit DDR proteins that allow completion of DNA replication after DNA damage and promote postreplication repair: Monoubiquitinated PCNA leads to recruitment of translesion (TLS) polymerases, while 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination of PCNA is involved in error-free pathway and employs recombination mechanisms to synthesize across the lesion.

Subunit Structure
Homotrimer (PubMed:24939902). Interacts with p300/EP300; the interaction occurs on chromatin in UV-irradiated damaged cells (PubMed:24939902). Interacts with CREBBP (via transactivation domain and C-terminus); the interaction occurs on chromatin in UV-irradiated damaged cells (PubMed:24939902). Directly interacts with POLD1, POLD3 and POLD4 subunits of the DNA polymerase delta complex, POLD3 being the major interacting partner; the interaction with POLD3 is inhibited by CDKN1A/p21(CIP1) (PubMed:11595739, PubMed:16510448, PubMed:22148433, PubMed:24939902). Forms a complex with activator 1 heteropentamer in the presence of ATP. Interacts with EXO1, POLH, POLK, DNMT1, ERCC5, FEN1, CDC6 and POLDIP2 (PubMed:9305916, PubMed:9302295, PubMed:9566895, PubMed:11784855, PubMed:12522211, PubMed:15225546, PubMed:15149598, PubMed:24911150, PubMed:15616578). Interacts with APEX2; this interaction is triggered by reactive oxygen species and increased by misincorporation of uracil in nuclear DNA (PubMed:11376153, PubMed:19443450). Forms a ternary complex with DNTTIP2 and core histone (PubMed:12786946). Interacts with KCTD10 and PPP1R15A (By similarity). Directly interacts with BAZ1B (PubMed:15543136). Interacts with HLTF and SHPRH (PubMed:17130289, PubMed:18316726, PubMed:18719106). Interacts with NUDT15; this interaction is disrupted in response to UV irradiation and acetylation (PubMed:19419956). Interacts with CDKN1A/p21(CIP1) and CDT1; interacts via their PIP-box which also recruits the DCX(DTL) complex. The interaction with CDKN1A inhibits POLD3 binding (PubMed:11595739, PubMed:16949367, PubMed:18794347, PubMed:18703516). Interacts with DDX11 (PubMed:18499658). Interacts with EGFR; positively regulates PCNA (PubMed:17115032). Interacts with PARPBP (PubMed:22153967). Interacts (when ubiquitinated) with SPRTN; leading to enhance RAD18-mediated PCNA ubiquitination (PubMed:22681887). Interacts (when polyubiquitinated) with ZRANB3 (PubMed:22704558, PubMed:22705370, PubMed:22759634). Interacts with SMARCAD1 (PubMed:21549307). Interacts with CDKN1C (PubMed:22634751). Interacts with PCLAF (via PIP-box) (PubMed:21628590, PubMed:23000965). Interacts with RTEL1 (via PIP-box); the interaction is direct and essential for the suppression of telomere fragility (PubMed:24115439). Interacts with FAM111A (via PIP-box); the interaction is direct and required for PCNA loading on chromatin binding (PubMed:24561620). Interacts with LIG1 (PubMed:24911150). Interacts with SETMAR (PubMed:20457750). Interacts with ANKRD17 (PubMed:23711367). Interacts with FBXO18/FBH1 (via PIP-box); the interaction recruits the DCX(DTL) complex and promotes ubiquitination and degradation of FBXO18/FBH1 (PubMed:23677613). Interacts with POLN (PubMed:19995904). Interacts with SDE2 (via PIP-box); the interaction is direct and prevents ultraviolet light induced monoubiquitination (PubMed:27906959). Component of the replisome complex composed of at least DONSON, MCM2, MCM7, PCNA and TICRR; interaction at least with PCNA occurs during DNA replication (PubMed:28191891). Interacts with MAPK15; the interaction is chromatin binding dependent and prevents MDM2-mediated PCNA destruction by inhibiting the association of PCNA with MDM2 (PubMed:20733054). 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.
