Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 42 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 42 kDa).


  • FunctionInvolved in the homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathway of double-stranded DNA breaks arising during DNA replication or induced by DNA-damaging agents. May promote the assembly of presynaptic RAD51 nucleoprotein filaments. The RAD51B-RAD51C dimer exhibits single-stranded DNA-dependent ATPase activity. The BCDX2 complex binds single-stranded DNA, single-stranded gaps in duplex DNA and specifically to nicks in duplex DNA.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in a wide range of tissues.
  • Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving RAD51L1 is found in pulmonary chondroid hamartoma. Translocation t(6;14)(p21;q23-24) with HMGA1.
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving RAD51L1 is found in uterine leiomyoma. Translocation t(12;14)(q15;q23-24) with HMGA2.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RecA family. RAD51 subfamily.
