Abstract [en]

Rad51 is a key protein involved in the strand exchange reaction, a reaction where genetic material is transferred between two homologous DNA strands. Strand exchange is initiated by Rad51 forming a helical filament around single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), and the strand exchange is thereafter executed with a homologous double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). The structure of Rad51-DNA filaments, and also the activity of the strand exchange reaction, is dependent on the presence of ATP and dications, where Ca2+ has been shown to promote a higher degree of strand exchange than Mg2+.
