The DNA binding activity of MutL is required for methyl-directed mismatch repair in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

The DNA binding properties of the mismatch repair protein MutL and their importance in the repair process have been controversial for nearly two decades. We have addressed this issue using a point mutant of MutL (MutL-R266E). The biochemical and genetic data suggest that DNA binding by MutL is required for dam methylation-directed mismatch repair. We… (More)
