"Werner Syndrome Helicase" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
A DNA-dependent helicase and 3'-5' exonuclease. It has 3'->5' exonuclease activity towards double-stranded DNA with a 5'-overhang and binds preferentially to DNA substrates containing alternate secondary structures, such as replication forks and HOLLIDAY JUNCTIONS. Mutations in the WRN gene are associated with WERNER SYNDROME.
