Domain

DNA replication/recombination mediator RecO, N-terminal (IPR022572)

Short name: DNA_rep/recomb_RecO_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the N-terminal domain of the bacterial recombination protein O (RecO). This domain of RecO adopts a typical OB-fold DNA-binding structure; it contains two three-stranded beta sheets with strand B1 common between both sheets [PMID: 15458636]. The RecO OB-fold is unusual in that it interacts primarily with the DNA backbone and is capable of binding ss and dsDNA [PMID: 15719017]. It is found in association with PF02565.
