DescriptionThe RecF protein is involved in DNA metabolism; it is required for DNA replication and normal SOS inducibility. When DNA is damaged and forms single-stranded DNA, Rec A binds single-stranded DNA (ssDNA). The binding of RecA onto ssDNA forms a nucleoprotein filament that promotes LexA cleavage (thereby inducing the SOS response). Recombinase mediator proteins RecF, RecO, and RecR act together to promote loading of RecA onto single stranded DNA.
