Model of RAYT action. (A) REP-specific DNA cleavage and ligation - scheme of hypothetical reaction (B) Model of RAYT-dependent BIME proliferation. REPs are represented with red arrows at corresponding DNA strands. REP-complementary sequences at opposite strands are represented with striped arrows. Two inter-REP segments are denoted in green and blue, respectively. RAYTs that form one dimer are denoted in the same color. Asterisks denote free OH groups. For details about the model, see text.
