Replication is required for the RecA localization response to DNA damage in Bacillus subtilis.


In both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, proteins involved in DNA repair often organize into multicomponent complexes that can be visualized as foci in living cells. We used a RecA-GFP fusion to examine the subcellular cues that direct RecA-GFP to assemble as foci in response to DNA damage. We used two different methods to inhibit initiation of DNA replication… (More)
