'Interactive' recognition in EcoRI restriction enzyme-DNA complex

Nucleic Acids Res. 1984 Oct 11;12(19):7285-92. doi: 10.1093/nar/12.19.7285.


A solution study of interaction between DNA and EcoRI restriction enzyme shows that there is a definite distortion of DNA in the specific recognition complexes but no measurable DNA distortion in the non-specific interaction.
