The remarkable ability of members of the Deinococcus family to recover from extreme DNA damage is in part owing to their robust DNA-repair mechanisms. Of particular interest is their ability to repair hundreds of double-strand DNA breakages through a rapid and efficient mechanism involving novel proteins that are uniquely found in Deinococcus spp. One such protein, DdrB, which is thought to play a role early in DSB repair, has been crystallized in complex with ssDNA and data have been collected to 2.3 Å resolution.
