Disease relevance of recJ

  • A role for the RecF, RecJ, and SbcB proteins in the RecBCD-dependent recombination pathway is suggested on the basis of the effect of null recF, recJ, and sbcB mutations in Salmonella typhimurium on a "short-homology" P22 transduction assay [1].

High impact information on recJ

  • In a standard transduction assay (about 20 kb of flanking sequence), recF, recJ, and sbcB mutations have a very small effect on recombinant frequency [1].
  • Plasmids remain unstable in recA recD recJ mutants; since these do not produce HMW linear concatemers, we propose that a decrease in monomer production leads to plasmid instability. recB recJ strains also display decreased viability, a component of which may be related to their deficiency in DNA repair [2].
