Comments [?]

Function A helicase/nuclease that prepares dsDNA breaks (DSB) for recombinational DNA repair. Binds to DSBs and unwinds DNA via a highly rapid and processive ATP-dependent bidirectional helicase activity. Unwinds dsDNA until it encounters a Chi (crossover hotspot instigator) sequence from the 3' direction. Cuts ssDNA a few nucleotides 3' to the Chi site. The properties and activities of the enzyme are changed at Chi. The Chi-altered holoenzyme produces a long 3'-ssDNA overhang and facilitates RecA-binding to the ssDNA for homologous DNA recombination and repair. Holoenzyme degrades any linearized DNA that is unable to undergo homologous recombination. In the holoenzyme this subunit contributes ATPase, 3'-5' helicase, exonuclease activity and loads RecA onto ssDNA.
Catalytic activity Reaction=Exonucleolytic cleavage (in the presence of ATP) in either 5'- to 3'- or 3'- to 5'-direction to yield 5'-phosphooligonucleotides.; EC=;
case <FTGroup:1>
Cofactor Mg(2+)
Note: Binds 1 Mg(2+) ion per subunit.
end case
Subunit Heterotrimer of RecB, RecC and RecD. All subunits contribute to DNA-binding. Interacts with RecA.
Domain The N-terminal DNA-binding domain is a ssDNA-dependent ATPase and has ATP-dependent 3'-5' helicase function. This domain interacts with RecC.
The C-terminal domain has nuclease activity and interacts with RecD. It interacts with RecA, facilitating its loading onto ssDNA.
Similarity Belongs to the helicase family. UvrD subfamily.
