The study of helicases and translocases is a rapidly growing field, fuelled by the fact that helicase defects are associated with inherited human diseases including neurological disorders, cancer, and aging processes. Pathogens encode helicases, making these enzymes targets for new anti-viral or anti-bacterial therapies. New discoveries linking helicases to disease states are being discovered regularly, due to the fact that helicases and translocases participate in a wide variety of cellular functions.
- Mechanisms and Roles of helicases and translocases
