A DNA double strand break results when two single strand breaks (i.e. cleavage of the phosphodiester backbone) occur within a 10 bp distance. The Ku70/80 heterodimer binds to the ends of the double strand break. Ku can then translocate inwards from the site of the break in an ATP-independent manner.
