Accurate genome duplication during cell division is essential for life. This process is accomplished by the close collaboration between replication factors and many additional proteins that provide assistant roles. Replication factors establish the replication machineries capable of copying billions of nucleotides, while regulatory proteins help to achieve accuracy and efficiency of replication. Among regulatory proteins, protein modification enzymes can bestow fast and reversible changes to many targets, leading to coordinated effects on replication. Recent studies have begun to elucidate how one type of protein modification, sumoylation, can modify replication proteins and regulate genome duplication through multiple mechanisms. This chapter summarizes these new findings, and how they can integrate with the known regulatory circuitries of replication. As this area of research is still at its infancy, many outstanding questions remain to be explored, and we discuss these issues in light of the new advances.
