Gene: Helb (DNA helicase B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Helb
Name: DNA helicase B
Description: Predicted to have 5'-3' DNA helicase activity; RNA binding activity; and single-stranded DNA helicase activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA replication, synthesis of RNA primer; cellular response to DNA damage stimulus; and regulation of double-strand break repair. Predicted to colocalize with the DNA replication factor A complex. Orthologous to human HELB (DNA helicase B); INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; acrylamide; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
