Protein FULL name:

Component of the holoenzyme form of RNA polymerase transcription factor TFIIH, has DNA-dependent ATPase/helicase activity and is required, with Rad3p, for unwinding promoter DNA; involved in DNA repair; homolog of human ERCC3

Ssl2p (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is product of expression of SSL2 gene.

Ssl2p is involved in:

NER in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

FUNCTION: Probably an ATP-dependent DNA helicase, which may have a DNA unwinding function. Has an essential function in translation initiation. Acts as component of the general transcription and DNA repair factor IIH (TFIIH) core, which is essential for both basal and activated transcription, and is involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER) of damaged DNA. TFIIH has CTD kinase and DNA-dependent ATPase activity, and is essential for polymerase II transcription in vitro.

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: ATP + H(2)O = ADP + phosphate.

SUBUNIT: Component of the TFIIH core complex, which is composed of RAD3, SSL1, SSL2, TFB1, TFB2, TFB4 and TFB5.

INTERACTION: P54113:ADE16; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-14213; P54783:ALO1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-2519; P38328:ARC40; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-2777; P53090:ARO8; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-2042933; P32288:GLN1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-7665; P00817:IPP1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-9338; P09938:RNR2; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-15240; P41811:SEC27; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-4898; P16965:STF2; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-2045666; P07806:VAS1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-18825; P22203:VMA4; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-14683, EBI-20268;


MISCELLANEOUS: A C-terminal deletion renders yeast hypersensitive to UV light.

MISCELLANEOUS: Present with 825 molecules/cell in log phase SD medium.

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the helicase family. RAD25/XPB subfamily.

SIMILARITY: Contains 1 helicase ATP-binding domain.

SIMILARITY: Contains 1 helicase C-terminal domain.
