摘要

Mutations affecting the RecF pathway of recombination (recF, recG, recJ, recN, recO, recQ, recR, ruvA, ruvC) were systematically introduced into two sets of strains: (a) uvrA and uvrA recA2020, (b) uvrA recBC sbcBC and uvrA recBC sbcBC recA2020. We examined: (i) the effect of these mutations on the repair of DNA daughter-strand gaps which are produced in the nascent DNA synthesized after UV irradiation, and (ii) the ability of recA2020 (a suppressor for the recF mutation) to suppress the UV radiation sensitivity caused by these mutations. In the uvrA cells, mutations in recF, recR or recO genes produced a major deficiency in the repair of daughter-strand gaps, whereas mutations in recJ, recG, recN, recQ, ruvA or ruvC genes had no effect on the repair of daughter-strand gaps. In both uvrA and uvrA recBC sbcBC backgrounds, the UV radiation sensitivity caused by recF, recG, recR, recO, ruvA, or ruvC mutation was partially suppressed by recA2020, whereas the UV radiation sensitivity caused by recJ, recN, or recQ mutations was not suppressed by recA2020. Partial suppression of the UV sensitivity of recG, ruvA and ruvC mutants was not observed with other suppressors for recF, i.e., recA441, recA720 and recA730. Taken together, these results further support the notion that the recF, recR and recO gene products (abbreviated as RecFOR) function at the same step in recombination repair, possible as a complex. It also suggests that this putative RecFOR) complex does not contain proteins encoded by other genes involved in the RecF pathway of recombination.
