MUT5 34
Protein Product
recombinase RAD51
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Strand exchange protein; forms helical filament with DNA that searches for homology; involved in recombinational repair of DNA double-strand breaks during vegetative growth and meiosis; direct phosphorylation by Cdc28p in G2/M phase promotes DNA binding, strand invasion, and primer extension; homolog of Dmc1p and bacterial RecA protein; RAD51 and RAD4 pathways confer resistance to benzo[a]pyrene dihydrodiol 2 3 4 5 6
