Electron micrographs of RecA-DNA filaments, formed under several different conditions, have been analyzed and the filament images reconstructed in three dimensions. In the presence of ATP and a non-hydrolyzable ATP analog. ATP-gamma-S, the RecA protein forms with DNA a right-handed helical complex with a pitch of approximately 95 A. The most detailed view of the filament was obtained from analysis of RecA filaments on double-stranded DNA in the presence of ATP-gamma-S. There are approximately… CONTINUE READING
