Comments RecA promotes ATP-dependent strand exchange between ssDNA and dsDNA [PUB_0529]. RecA effects a 106-fold rate enhancement [PUB_0529]. It is not yet clear how RecA protein-mediated ATP hydrolysis is coupled to strand exchange [PUB_0529]. Kinetic rate determined by Bazemore et al (0.05-0.07 1/s) [PUB_0528], Xiao et al (0.053-0.42) [PUB_0529], and Bhattacharyya et al (0.082 1/min) [PUB_0530]. Km determined by Bhattacharyya et al (28.37 μM) [PUB_0530].
