Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000607
UniProt IDQ8WVB6
Primary gene name(s)CHTF18
Synonym gene name(s)C16orf41, CTF18
Protein nameChromosome transmission fidelity protein 18 homolog
Protein functionChromosome cohesion factor involved in sister chromatid cohesion and fidelity of chromosome transmission. Component of one of the cell nuclear antigen loader complexes, CTF18-replication factor C, CTF18-RFC, which consists of CTF18, CTF8, DCC1, RFC2, RFC3, RFC4 and RFC5. The CTF18-RFC complex binds to single-stranded and primed DNAs and has weak ATPase activity that is stimulated by the presence of primed DNA, replication protein A, RPA and by proliferating cell nuclear antigen, PCNA. The CTF18-RFC complex catalyzes the ATP-dependent loading of PCNA onto primed and gapped DNA. It also interacts with and stimulates DNA polymerase POLH. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12766176, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12930902, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17545166}.
Subcellular locationNucleus {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12766176}. Note=Associates with chromatin during S phase.
