High impact information on ATRAD51


Biological context of ATRAD51

  • Finally, a synchronisation experiment conducted with the suspension culture indicated that not only AtRAD51 but also AtDMC1 are regulated during the cell cycle, with S-phase-specific induction [4].
  • Our studies reveal that the swi1-2 mutation prevents the formation of RAD51 foci during meiotic prophase and suppresses the chromosome fragmentation phenotype of the recombination-defective dif1-1 mutant [5].
  • We have recently reported that the absence of AtXrcc3, an Arabidopsis Rad51 paralogue, leads to extensive chromosome fragmentation during meiosis, first visible in diplotene of meiotic prophase I [6].
