- PubMed Abstract:
DNA primases catalyse the synthesis of the short RNA primers that are required for DNA replication by DNA polymerases. Primases comprise three functional domains: a zinc-binding domain that is responsible for template recognition, a polymerase domain, and a domain that interacts with the replicative helicase, DnaB.
