Ishimi Y, et al. (1996) Binding of human minichromosome maintenance proteins with histone H3. J Biol Chem 271(39):24115-22
Abstract: Minichromosome maintenance (MCM) proteins play essential roles in eukaryotic DNA replication, but their biochemical properties remain to be determined. We detected in HeLa cell extracts six proteins, CDC47, CDC46/MCM5, Cdc21, P1/MCM3, Mis5, and BM28/MCM2, by their binding to a specific antibody and by partial sequencing. The human homologs of the MCM2 (BM28), Mis5, Cdc21, and CDC47 proteins were tightly bound to a histone-Sepharose column and purified to near homogeneity, whereas the P1/MCM3 and CDC46/MCM5 proteins passed through. Among the four core histones, the human BM28/MCM2, Mis5, Cdc21, and CDC47 proteins had high affinity for histone H3. Immunoprecipitation with anti-Cdc21 antibody revealed that these four MCM proteins form complexes. These results are consistent with the findings that MCM proteins bind with chromatin in vivo.
