© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Homologous recombination faithfully restores the sequence information interrupted by a DNA double-strand break by referencing an intact DNA molecule as a template for repair DNA synthesis. DNA synthesis is primed from 3′-OH end of the invading DNA strand in the displacement loop (D-loop). Here, we describe a simple and quantitative proximity ligation-based assay to study the initiation of homologous recombination-associated DNA synthesis initiated at the D-loop and final product formation. The D-loop extension assay overcomes the semiquantitative nature and some limitations of the current PCR-based technique and facilitates the study of the recombination-associated DNA synthesis.
