The Flp recombinase of Saccharomyces cerevisae can mediate strand transfer within a half-site, between two half-sites and between a half-site and a full-site. The ability of "step-arrest" mutants of Flp to partake in half-site reactions has been examined. Arg308 variants of Flp, which show little or no strand cleavage in reactions with normal full-sites, execute significant levels of strand transfer in half-site reactions. On the other hand, His305 variants of Flp, which normally accumulate the strand cleavage product from full-sites but do not complete strand transfer, yield only minute amounts of strand transfer products from half-sites. As would be predicted, the step-arrest mutants are unable to produce "normal" or "reverse" recombinants between a half-site and a full-site. The Flp protein is able to form higher-order complexes in association with a half-site. The step-arrest mutants of Flp show specific defects in forming these complexes.
