Helicases use the energy from ATP hydrolysis to catalyze formation of single-stranded nucleic acids by unwinding double-stranded nucleic acids. The ATP-dependent reaction can be broken down into at least two steps: melting of the duplex and translocation of the enzyme along the nucleic acid lattice. Each step presents difficulties for study because clear end points for the reactions are not always...
