Replication fork blockage by transcription factor-DNA complexes in Escherichia coli.
All organisms require mechanisms that resuscitate replication forks when they break down, reflecting the complex intracellular environments within which DNA replication occurs. Here we show that as few as three lac repressor-operator complexes block Escherichia coli replication forks in vitro regardless of the topological state of the DNA. Blockage with tandem repressor-operator complexes was also observed in vivo, demonstrating that replisomes have a limited ability to translocate through hi...Expand abstract
