Gene: Rad51 (RAD51 recombinase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rad51
Name: RAD51 recombinase
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA metabolic process; cellular response to alkaloid; and cellular response to hydroxyurea. Localizes to the lateral element and nuclear chromosome, telomeric region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fanconi anemia complementation group R; breast cancer; congenital mirror movement disorder; and ovarian cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; compacted morula; paravertebral ganglion; primary spermatocyte; and thymus primordium. Orthologous to human RAD51 (RAD51 recombinase); PARTICIPATES IN homologous recombination pathway of double-strand break repair; ceramide signaling pathway; pancreatic cancer pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-dexrazoxane; 1,1-dichloroethene; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AV304093; DNA repair protein RAD51 homolog 1; RAD51 homolog A; Rad51a; Reca
