Holliday junction resolvase RusA-like (IPR008822)

Short name: Endonuclease_RusA-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family consists of several bacterial and phage Holliday junction resolvase (RusA) like proteins. The RusA protein of Escherichia coli is an endonuclease that can resolve Holliday intermediates and correct the defects in genetic recombination and DNA repair associated with inactivation of RuvAB or RuvC [PMID: 7813450].
