ISC2 20
Protein Product
recombinase DMC1
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Meiosis-specific recombinase required for double-strand break repair; also required for pairing between homologous chromosomes and for the normal morphogenesis of synaptonemal complex; binds ssDNA and dsDNA, forms helical filaments; potent inhibitor of the ATPase activity of Srs2p helicase, blocking its ssDNA translocating motor activity and inhibiting its antirecombinase activity; stimulated by Rdh54p; homolog of Rad51p and the bacterial RecA protein 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
