Overlapping roles for Yen1 and Mus81 in cellular Holliday junction processing.

Eukaryotic Holliday junction (HJ) resolvases have attracted much attention recently with the identification of at least three distinct proteins that can cleave model HJs in vitro. However, the specific DNA structure(s) that these proteins act upon in the cell is unknown. Here, we describe a system in budding yeast to directly and quantitatively monitor in… CONTINUE READING
