Site-directed mutagenesis studies of tn5 transposase residues involved in synaptic complex formation.

Abstract

Transposition (the movement of discrete segments of DNA, resulting in rearrangement of genomic DNA) initiates when transposase forms a dimeric DNA-protein synaptic complex with transposon DNA end sequences. The synaptic complex is a prerequisite for catalytic reactions that occur during the transposition process. The transposase-DNA interactions involved in… (More)
