    Archaeal RadAs are close homologues of eukaryal Rad51s ( approximately 40% sequence identities). These recombinases promote a hallmark strand exchange process between homologous single-stranded and double-stranded DNA substrates. This DNA-repairing function also plays a key role in cancer cells' resistance to chemo- and radiotherapy. Inhibition of the strand exchange process may render cancer cells more susceptible to therapeutic treatment. We found that metatungstate is a potent inhibitor of RadA from Methanococcus voltae. The tungsten cluster binds RadA in the axial DNA-binding groove. This polyanionic species appears to inhibit RadA by locking the protein in its inactive conformation.
