Homologous recombination is important for error-free repair of DNA double-strand breaks and to restart stalled replication fork. Recombinases of the RecA/RAD51 family perform the central catalytic role in DNA repair and replication. UvsX recombinase is the RecA/Rad51 ortholog of bacteriophage T4. UvsX DNA Recombinase and other recombinases bind to regions of ssDNA to form a presynaptic filament which activates recombination activity to search for homology in dsDNA and to perform DNA strand exchange (1,2)
