In all organisms, the DNA replication machinery is responsible for accurate and efficient duplication of the chromosome. Inhibitors of replication proteins are commonly used in anti-cancer and anti-viral therapies. This eBook on “The DNA Replication Machinery as Therapeutic Targets” examines the normal functions of replication proteins as well as strategies to target each step during the replication process including DNA unwinding, DNA synthesis, and DNA damage bypass and repair. Articles discuss current strategies to develop drugs targeting DNA replication proteins as well as future outlooks and needs.
