In the version of this article initially published, the abstract mistakenly included the phrase “RAD51-binding models.” It should read “RAD51-binding modes.” In addition, on page 478, the sixth sentence of the second paragraph should read, “However, neither BRCA2Exon27 nor BRCA2Exon27-Ph interacted with the monomeric form of RAD51 (Fig. 4c), although BRCA2Exon27 bound a GST–wild-type RAD51 fusion protein (Fig. 4d).” The errors have been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
