DNA helicase that plays a role in DNA damage repair and genome stability (PubMed:15886194, PubMed:35025765, PubMed:7527136, PubMed:7961977, PubMed:8056767). Exhibits a magnesium- and ATP-dependent DNA-helicase activity that unwinds single- and double-stranded DNA in a 3′-5′ direction (PubMed:19151156, PubMed:35025765, PubMed:7527136, PubMed:8056767). Full-length protein unwinds forked DNA substrates, resolves Holliday junctions, and has DNA strand annealing activity (PubMed:19151156, PubMed:25831490). Plays a role in restoring regressed replication forks (PubMed:35025765). Required to restart stalled replication forks induced by abortive topoisomerase 1 and 2 lesions (PubMed:35025765). May play a role in the repair of DNA that is damaged by ultraviolet light or other mutagens (PubMed:15886194, PubMed:7961977).
