Abstract

In the October 5 issue of Cell, Singleton et al. report the crystal structure of RecG protein bound to an analog of a stalled DNA replication fork. This structure shows how RecG can recognize branched DNA structures and suggests a mechanism for fork reversal, an early event in recombination-dependent reinitiation of DNA replication.
