The interaction between homologous DNA molecules in recombination and DNA repair leads to the formation of crossover intermediates known as Holliday junctions. Their enzymatic processing by the RuvABC system in bacteria involves the formation of a complex between RuvA and the Holliday junction. To study the solution structure of this complex, contrast(More)
The Mycobacterium leprae RuvA homologue (MlRuvA) was over-expressed in Escherichia coli and purified to homogeneity. The DNA-binding specificity and the functional interactions of MlRuvA with E. coli RuvB and RuvC (EcRuvB and EcRuvC) were examined using synthetic Holliday junctions. MlRuvA bound specifically to Holliday junctions and produced similar(More)
