The mei-3 gene of Neurospora crassa encodes a homolog of the Escherichia coli RecA and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad51 proteins, which are required for recombination and repair of DNA double-strand breaks. To determine the molecular function of MEI3 protein, anti-MEI3 antibody was prepared and used in Western blot analysis. The antibody cross-reacted only with crude extracts prepared from perithecia, the fruiting bodies of Neurospora. The molecular weight of the MEI3 protein was estimated to be… CONTINUE READING
