Site-specific recombination by Tn3 resolvase.

Abstract

Site-specific recombination processes in microbes bring about precise DNA rearrangements which have diverse and important biological functions. The sites and recombinase enzymes used for these processes fall into two distinct families. Here we describe how experiments with one family, exemplified by the resolution system of transposon Tn3, have provided insight into the ways in which DNA and protein interact to bring together distant recombination sites and promote strand exchange.
