A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Saccharomyces cerevisiae Srs2 helicase was shown to displace Rad51 in vitro upon translocation on single-stranded DNA. This activity is sufficient to account for its antirecombination effect and for the elimination of otherwise dead-end recombination intermediates. Roles for the helicase activity are yet unknown. Because cells lacking Srs2 show increased incidence of mitotic crossovers, it was postulated that Srs2 promotes synthesis-dependent strand annealing (SDSA) by unwinding the elongating invading strand from the donor strand. We report here that synthetic DNA structures that mimic D loops are good substrates for the Srs2 helicase activity, that Srs2 translocates on RPA-coated ssDNA, and, furthermore, that the helicase activity is largely stimulated by the presence of Rad51 nucleoprotein filaments on double-stranded DNA. These properties strongly support the idea that Srs2 actively prevents crossovers by promoting SDSA.
