Escherichia coli single-stranded DNA-binding protein alters the structure of intramolecular triplexes in plasmids.


PMID 8224190

Abstract

The ability of the Escherichia coli single-stranded DNA-binding protein (SSB) to recognize structural features associated with intramolecular triplex formation in oligopurine.oligopyrimidine (pur.pyr) inserts in recombinant plasmids was evaluated. The SSB protein binds to supercoiled plasmids and causes a site-preferential increase in OsO4 reactivity of the pyrimidine strand involved in the formation of the Hy-3 isomer of the triplex structure. The E. coli RecA protein showed no reaction with triplexes in similar studies. This behavior is consistent with SSB-mediated unpairing of the H-DNA-forming region.
