Double-Strand Break Repair in Bacteriophage T4: Recombination Effects of 39–59 Exonuclease Mutations

Abstract

The role of 39–59 exonucleases in double-strand break (DSB)-promoted recombination was studied in crosses of bacteriophage T4, in which DSBs were induced site specifically within the rIIB gene by SegC endonuclease in the DNA of only one of the parents. Frequency of rII recombinants was measured in two-factor crosses of the type i 3 ets1, where ets1… (More)
