26823731 Suggest role for MCM8 in the pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia.
25873734 MCM8, a component of the pre-replication complex, is crucial for gonadal development and maintenance in humans-both males and females. These

23401855 Chromatin immunoprecipitation analysis using human DR-GFP cells demonstrated that MCM8 and MCM9 proteins are rapidly recruited to DNA damage sites and promote RAD51 recruitment.

18072282 We find that MCM8, like MCM7, colocalizes on a specific DNA segment of the c-MYC replication initiation zone (c-MYC replicator) of DNA replications together with Cdc6 and cdk2, but differs with MCM7 in spatial relation to RPA70 during S phase.
15684404 MCM8 is a crucial component of the pre-RC and that the interaction between hMCM8 and hcdc6 is required for pre-RC assembly.
12771218 The MCM8 gene is located contrapodal to GCD10 at chromosome band 20p12.3-13.
