    RAD51 recombinase

  • Overview

    The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the RAD51 protein family. RAD51 family members are highly similar to bacterial RecA and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad51, and are known to be involved in the homologous recombination and repair of DNA. This protein can interact with the ssDNA-binding protein RPA and RAD52, and it is thought to play roles in homologous pairing and strand transfer of DNA. This protein is also found to interact with BRCA1 and BRCA2, which may be important for the cellular response to DNA damage. BRCA2 is shown to regulate both the intracellular localization and DNA-binding ability of this protein. Loss of these controls following BRCA2 inactivation may be a key event leading to genomic instability and tumorigenesis. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2009]

          Ask a question
          How does RAD51 contribute to the homologous recombination (HR) repair pathway? 10/24/2021

          In the HR pathway, RAD51 forms nucleoprotein filaments on single-stranded DNA, allowing it to search for and invade a homologous DNA sequence, facilitating accurate DNA repair.

          Are there any known interactions between RAD51 and BRCA proteins? 05/02/2021

          Yes, RAD51 interacts with BRCA proteins, especially BRCA2. This interaction is crucial for the proper function of RAD51 in the HR pathway.

          Are there any diseases or conditions associated with RAD51 dysregulation or mutations? 10/17/2020

          While mutations in RAD51 are rare, dysregulation of its function can contribute to genomic instability. Some mutations in RAD51 have been linked to increased cancer susceptibility.

          What is the primary function of RAD51 in DNA repair mechanisms? 05/27/2020

          RAD51 plays a central role in the DNA repair mechanism, specifically in homologous recombination (HR), where it facilitates the search for homology and strand pairing.

          How is RAD51 recruited to sites of DNA damage? 06/01/2018

          RAD51 is recruited to sites of DNA damage through interactions with various mediator proteins, including BRCA2, which helps load RAD51 onto single-stranded DNA regions.

          Can RAD51 activity be targeted therapeutically in cancer treatments? 06/01/2018

          Yes, RAD51's activity can be targeted therapeutically. Inhibiting RAD51 can sensitize cancer cells to DNA-damaging agents, making it a potential target in combination cancer therapies, especially for tumors with defective DNA repair pathways.

          How does RAD51's function compare to that of its paralogs, like RAD51B, RAD51C, etc.? 05/09/2018

          RAD51 has several paralogs, including RAD51B, RAD51C, RAD51D, XRCC2, and XRCC3. While they all play roles in HR, each has distinct functions and interactions, with some acting as mediators or stabilizers of RAD51's nucleoprotein filament.
