Asymmetric activation of Xer site-specific recombination by FtsK.

Abstract:

Chromosome dimers, which frequently form in Escherichia coli, are resolved by the combined action of two tyrosine recombinases, XerC and XerD, acting at a specific site on the chromosome, dif, together with the cell division protein FtsK. The C-terminal domain of FtsK (FtsK(C)) is a DNA translocase implicated in helping synapsis of the dif sites and in locally promoting XerD strand exchanges after synapse formation. Here we show that FtsK(C) ATPase activity is directly involved in the local a...
