The double substitution of Glu156 with Leu and Gly157 with Val in the Escherichia coli RecA protein results in a severely reduced level of recombination and constitutive coprotease behavior. Here we present our examination of the biochemical properties of this mutant protein, RecA N99, in an effort to understand its phenotype and the role of loop 1 (L1) in(More)
The mutation of Pro67 to Trp (P67W) in the Escherichia coli RecA protein results in reduced recombination and constitutive coprotease phenotypes. We examined the biochemical properties of this mutant in an effort to understand these altered behaviors. We find that RecA P67W protein can access single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) binding sites within regions of(More)
