Comments RuvAB catalyzes strand migration by an ATP-dependent mechanism [PUB_0532]. RuvA tetramers unfold the junction in a square planar conformation [PUB_0532]. RuvB hexamers possess DNA-dependent ATPase activity that is stimulated by RuvA [PUB_0536]. Although there is 1 ATP binding site per RuvB monomer, each hexamer only binds 2 ATPs, only 1 of which is hydrolyzed [PUB_0537]. Junction migration occurs in discrete hops of mean length 2.2 bases [PUB_0538] at a rate 3-100 bp/s [PUB_0531, PUB_0532, PUB_0533, PUB_0534, PUB_0535, PUB_0538]. Junctions are preferentially resolved at the sequence 5'-(A/T)TT↓(G/C)-3' [PUB_0532].
