Analysis of the molecular mechanism of DNA recombination by Escherichia coli RecA protein

Study period:1994 - 2000
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (2):
Research overview:
RecA protein has an important role for homologous DNA recombination. The RecA proteins form a filament structure, which binds two DNA strands and catalyses strand exchange reactions. We are investigating the DNA binding sites in the filament in order to understand the molecular mechanism of the DNA recombination.
