Escherichia coli RadD Protein Functionally Interacts with the Single-stranded DNA-binding Protein.


The bacterial single-stranded DNA binding protein (SSB) acts as an organizer of DNA repair complexes. The radD gene was recently identified as having an unspecified role in repair of radiation damage and, more specifically, DNA double-strand breaks. Purified RadD protein displays a DNA-independent ATPase activity. However, ATP hydrolytic rates are… (More)
