Disease relevance of recF


High impact information on recF

  • After UV-induced DNA damage in Escherichia coli, RecA and several recF pathway proteins are thought to process arrested replication forks and ensure that replication resumes accurately [2].
  • The DNA sequences of the genetic environment surrounding bla(SHV-5) were homologous to plasmid p1658/97 from Escherichia coli, containing a truncated recF gene and a truncated deoR gene upstream and downstream from bla(SHV-5), respectively [3].
