Swapping DNA strands and sensing homology without branch migration in lambda site-specific recombination.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Many site-specific recombinases act by forming and resolving branched Holliday junction intermediates. Previous findings have been consistent with models involving branch migration across the 'overlap region' of obligate homology, located between the staggered sites where the two single-strand exchanges occur. We have investigated the validity of… (More)
