Dpb4p (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is product of expression of DPB4 gene.

FUNCTION: DNA polymerase epsilon (DNA polymerase II) participates in chromosomal DNA replication. It is required during synthesis of the leading and lagging DNA strands at the replication fork and binds at/or near replication origins and moves along DNA with the replication fork. It has 3'-5' proofreading exonuclease activity that correct errors arising during DNA replication. It is also involved in DNA synthesis during DNA repair. Also functions as component of the ISW2 complex, which acts in remodeling the chromatin by catalyzing an ATP-dependent alteration in the structure of nucleosomal DNA. THe ISW2 complex is involved in coordinating transcriptional repression and in inheritance of telomeric silencing. It is involved in repression of MAT a- specific genes, INO1, and early meiotic genes during mitotic growth dependent upon transcription factor UME6 and in a parallel pathway to the RPD3-SIN3 histone deacetylase complex.

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Deoxynucleoside triphosphate + DNA(n) = diphosphate + DNA(n+1).

SUBUNIT: DNA polymerase epsilon is a heterotetramer consisting of POL2, DPB2, DPB3 and DPB4. Component of the ISW2 complex, which at least consists of ISW2, ITC1, DLS1 and DPB4.

INTERACTION: P09938:RNR2; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-29938, EBI-15240;


MISCELLANEOUS: In eukaryotes there are five DNA polymerases: alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon which are responsible for different reactions of DNA synthesis.

MISCELLANEOUS: Present with 2100 molecules/cell in log phase SD medium.
