IUBMB Comments
DNA helicases utilize the energy from ATP hydrolysis to unwind double-stranded DNA. Some of them unwind duplex DNA with a 3' to 5' polarity [1,3,5,8], others show 5' to 3' polarity [10,11,12,13] or unwind DNA in both directions [14,15]. Some helicases unwind DNA as well as RNA [9,10]. May be identical with EC (RNA helicase).
