Bacillus subtilis cells respond to double strand breaks (DSBs) with an ordered recruitment of repair proteins to the site lesion, being RecN one of the first responders. In B. subtilis, one of the responses to DSBs is to increase RecN expression rather than modifying its turnover rate. End-processing activities and the RecA protein itself contribute to increase RecN levels after DNA DSBs. RecO is required for RecA filament formation and full SOS induction, but its absence did not significantly… CONTINUE READING
