Rad54 dissociates homologous recombination intermediates by branch migration

Abstract

Double-strand DNA breaks (DSBs) cause cell death and genome instability. Homologous recombination is a major DSB repair pathway that operates by forming joint molecules with homologous DNA sequences, which are used as templates to achieve accurate repair. In eukaryotes, Rad51 protein (RecA homolog) searches for homologous sequences and catalyzes the… (More)
