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 recognizes the wild-type Chi sequence, and when added to isolated RecB increases its ATP-dependent helicase processivity.
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=;
Subunit Heterotrimer of RecB, RecC and RecD. All subunits contribute to DNA-binding.
Similarity Belongs to the RecC family.
