The sliding clamp of the Escherichia coli replisome is now understood to interact with many proteins involved in DNA synthesis and repair. A universal interaction motif is proposed to be one mechanism by which those proteins bind the E. coli sliding clamp, a homodimer of the β subunit, at a single site on the dimer. The numerous β2-binding proteins have various versions of the consensus interaction motif, including a related hexameric sequence. To determine if the variants of the motif could...[Show more]
