Hydroxyurea-stalled replication forks become progressively inactivated and require two different RAD51-mediated pathways for restart and repair.

Petermann E, Orta ML, Issaeva N, Schultz N, Helleday T - Mol. Cell (2010)

Bottom Line: Here, we report that stalled replication forks are efficiently restarted in a RAD51-dependent process that does not trigger homologous recombination (HR).The XRCC3 protein, which is required for RAD51 foci formation, is also required for replication restart of HU-stalled forks, suggesting that RAD51-mediated strand invasion supports fork restart.In contrast, replication forks collapsed by prolonged replication blocks do not restart, and global replication is rescued by new origin firing.
