Sažetak
The RecQ helicase is required by the RecF recombination pathway that is operative in recBC(D) sbcB sbcC(D) mutants of Escherichia coli. Genetic data suggest that RecQ participates in resection of DNA ends during initiation of recombination. In vitro, RecQ can unwind a variety of DNA substrates, including recombination intermediates such as D-loops and Holliday junctions. However, its potential role in processing of recombination intermediates during the late stage of the RecF pathway has not been genetically tested. Here we studied the effect of a recQ mutation on transductional recombination and DNA repair after gamma-irradiation in delrecBCD delsbcB sbcC strains deficient for RuvABC, RecG and XerC proteins. RuvABC and RecG proteins process recombination intermediates in the late stage of recombination, whereas XerC is required to resolve chromosome dimers formed upon recombination. Our results do not reveal any substantial synergistic effect between the recQ mutation, on one hand, and ruvABC, recG and xerC mutations on the other. In addition, the recQ mutation suppresses chromosome segregation defects in gamma-irradiated ruvABC recG and xerC mutants. These results suggest that RecQ acts upstream of RuvABC, RecG and XerC proteins, a finding that is compatible with its primary role in initiation of the RecF recombination pathway.
