Archaeal DNA helicase HerA interacts with Mre11 homologue and unwinds blunt-ended double-stranded DNA and recombination intermediates.


HerA is a novel family DNA helicases that exist ubiquitously in thermophilic archaea. The genes are linked to homologues of eukaryotic recombination and repair proteins Mre11 and Rad50 in some of the genomes. However, the relationship between HerA and the related proteins is unclear. In this study, a homologue from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus… (More)
