Comments [?]

Function Nuclease that resolves Holliday junction intermediates in genetic recombination. Cleaves the cruciform structure in supercoiled DNA by nicking to strands with the same polarity at sites symmetrically opposed at the junction in the homologous arms and leaves a 5'-terminal phosphate and a 3'-terminal hydroxyl group (By similarity).
Catalytic activity Endonucleolytic cleavage at a junction such as a reciprocal single-stranded crossover between two homologous DNA duplexes (Holliday junction).
case <FTGroup:1>
Cofactor Binds 1 magnesium ion per subunit (By similarity).
end case
Similarity Belongs to the RuvC family.
