Chromatin licensing and DNA replication factor 1; Required for both DNA replication and mitosis. DNA replication licensing factor, required for pre-replication complex assembly. Cooperates with CDC6 and the origin recognition complex (ORC) during G1 phase of the cell cycle to promote the loading of the mini-chromosome maintenance (MCM) complex onto DNA to generate pre-replication complexes (pre- RC). Required also for mitose by promoting stable kinetochore-microtubule attachments. Potential oncogene (By similarity); Belongs to the Cdt1 family.
