Crystal structure of the Pyrococcus horikoshii DNA primase-UTP complex: implications for the mechanism of primer synthesis.


In chromosomal DNA replication, DNA primase initiates the synthesis of a dinucleotide on a single-stranded template DNA, and elongates it to form a primer RNA for the replicative DNA polymerase. Although the apo-structure of an archaeal primase has been reported, the mechanism of primer synthesis by the eukaryotic-type primase still remains to be elucidated.
