Genetic recombination in Escherichia coli: Holliday junctions made by RecA protein are resolved by fractionated cell-free extracts.

Abstract

Escherichia coli RecA protein catalyzes reciprocal strand-exchange reactions between duplex DNA molecules, provided that one contains a single-stranded gap or tail, to form recombination intermediates containing Holliday junctions. Recombination reactions are thought to occur within helical RecA-nucleoprotein filaments in which DNA molecules are interwound… (More)
