DNase protection analysis of the stable synaptic complexes involved in Mu transposition.

Abstract

Several critical steps in phage Mu transposition involve specialized protein-DNA complexes. Cleavage of Mu donor DNA by MuA protein leads to the formation of the stable cleaved donor complex (CDC), in which the two Mu DNA ends are held together by MuA. In the subsequent strand-transfer reaction the CDC attacks a target DNA to generate the strand-transfer… (More)
