Expression of the dnaB gene of Escherichia coli is inducible by replication-blocking DNA damage in a recA-independent manner.
The replicative DNA helicase encoded by the dnaB gene is essential for chromosomal DNA replication in Escherichia coli. The DnaB protein is a component of the phi X-type primosome which is regardedExpand
