Abstract

Background: Rdh54 is a motor protein that is able to dissociate Rad51 recombinase from chromatin. Results: The Rad51-binding domain of Rdh54 resides within its N terminus and is required for Rad51 removal from DNA. Conclusion: Rdh54-Rad51 interaction is important for Rad51 dissociation from chromatin but not for DNA repair. Significance: Rdh54 inhibits accumulation of toxic Rad51-DNA complexes.
