Human(4171) Summary: The protein encoded by this gene is one of the highly conserved mini-chromosome maintenance proteins (MCM) that are involved in the initiation of eukaryotic genome replication. The hexameric protein complex formed by MCM proteins is a key component of the pre-replication complex (pre_RC) and may be involved in the formation of replication forks and in the recruitment of other DNA replication related proteins. This protein forms a complex with MCM4, 6, and 7, and has been shown to regulate the helicase activity of the complex. This protein is phosphorylated, and thus regulated by, protein kinases CDC2 and CDC7. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been defined. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2012]

MISSION® siRNAs have been designed using a world-class siRNA design algorithm licensed from Rosetta Inpharmatics, a leader in advanced siRNA research. The Rosetta-powered siRNA design algorithm has been optimized with over 3 years of continuous development for enhanced performance in RNAi applications. New and critical siRNA design rules incorporated into the latest algorithm lead to increased target specificity and knockdown for low abundance messages.
Validated MISSION® siRNAs have been functionally validated in Hela cells by Sigma scientists to Knockdown gene expression by 75% or greater. With Validated MISSION® siRNAs, we have done the upfront validation work, so that you do not have to.
