Investigation of the role of C243–G277 base pair on dimer formation. a Schematic representation of the mutants constructed for dimerization assay. b Dimerization ability of each mutant. The Y-axis represented the magnitude of efficiency of each mutant compared to that of the wild-type. The value of the wild-type was set as one. c Genome recombination assay with various combinations of the mutants. The Y-axis represented the magnitude of recombination in each assay. The value of the homomeric recombination of wild-type (CG–CG) was set as one
