IHF redistributes bound initiator protein, DnaA, on supercoiled oriC of Escherichia coli.

Abstract

In Escherichia coli, initiation of chromosome replication requires that DnaA binds to R boxes (9-mer repeats) in oriC, the unique chromosomal replication origin. At the time of initiation, integration host factor (IHF) also binds to a specific site in oriC. IHF stimulates open complex formation by DnaA on supercoiled oriC in cell-free replication systems… (More)
