An archaeal endonuclease displays key properties of both eukaryal XPF-ERCC1 and Mus81.


Structure-specific nucleases of the XPF/Mus81 family function in several DNA recombination and repair pathways in eukaryotes, cleaving a variety of flap and branched DNA substrates. Mus81 and XPF are clearly related evolutionarily but differ markedly in their substrate specificity and protein partners. We demonstrate that the XPF endonuclease from… (More)
