Abstract
DNA unwinding factor (DUF) unwinds duplex DNA and is supposed to function in DNA replication in Xenopus egg extracts. Here we report the isolation and analysis of a DUF-interacting factor. By immunoprecipitation, we found that p97 ATPase (p97) interacts with DUF in Xenopus egg extracts. This interaction was confirmed by the in vitro binding of purified p97 with DUF. When sperm chromatin was added to Xenopus egg extracts to construct nuclei active in DNA replication, p97 was incorporated into the nuclei. These data suggest that the complex of DUF and p97 may function in DNA replication.
