In a paper in this week's issue of Science, Voloshin et al. (p. 868) show that a 20-amino acid peptide from RecA, a bacterial protein that repairs and recombines DNA, can mediate DNA strand exchange--one of the functions of the RecA protein. Stasiak discusses why this result is surprising and what the rest of the RecA protein is for.
