A study of DNA replication targets genes for antibiotic resistance

A model for the initiation of SaPI DNA replication mediated by Rep. (a) ATP-independent flexibility of CTD reveals residues involved in iteron recognition. The diameter of the barrel may accommodate at its N- and C-terminal sides dsDNA. In (b), two hexamers speculatively depicted embracing dsDNA. Possible interactions between hexamers and hexamers may lead to opposite … Read more
