DESCRIPTION
Also known as PRIM_HCMVA, UL70. Essential component of the helicase/primase complex. Unwinds the DNA at the replication forks and generates single-stranded DNA for both leading and lagging strand synthesis. The primase initiates primer synthesis and thereby produces large amount of short RNA primers on the lagging strand that the polymerase elongates using dNTPs. Associates with the helicase and the primase-associated factor to form the helicase-primase factor (By similarity).
