Abstract

In Escherichia coli, the Rep helicase has been implicated in replication fork progression, replication restart, homologous recombination, and DNA repair. We show that a Neisseria gonorrhoeae rep mutant is deficient in the homologous-recombination-mediated processes of DNA transformation and pilus-based colony variation but not in DNA repair.
