Unnamed Gene ID: 947105

Known also as: ECK2612; JW5416; radB;

NCBI Gene ID: 947105
Species: Escherichia coli strain K-12 substr. MG1655

LexA regulon. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10831]. RecN is required for repair of double strand breaks in the chromosome when these breaks occur at two or more locations, but not when there is a single break in the chromosome. [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG10831].
