InterPro : IPR004609

Name  ATP-dependent DNA helicase RecG Short Name  ATP-dep_DNA_helicase_RecG
Type  Family Description  The ATP-dependent DNA helicase RecG plays a critical role in recombination and DNA repair. It helps to process Holliday junction intermediates to mature products by catalysing branch migration. RecG has DNA unwinding activity characteristic of a DNA helicase with 3' to 5' polarity. RecG unwind branched duplex DNA (Y-DNA) and has a role in constitutive stable DNA replication (CsdR) and R-loop formation [, ].
