    • Function

      Plays an important role in homologous strand exchange, a key step in DNA repair through homologous recombination. Binds to single and double-stranded DNA and exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity. Catalyzes the recognition of homology and strand exchange between homologous DNA partners to form a joint molecule between a processed DNA break and the repair template. Binds to single-stranded DNA in an ATP-dependent manner to form nucleoprotein filaments which are essential for the homology search and strand exchange (PubMed:26681308). Part of a PALB2-scaffolded HR complex containing BRCA2 and RAD51C and which is thought to play a role in DNA repair by HR. Plays a role in regulating mitochondrial DNA copy number under conditions of oxidative stress in the presence of RAD51C and XRCC3.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed in testis and thymus, followed by small intestine, placenta, colon, pancreas and ovary. Weakly expressed in breast.
    • Involvement in disease

      Breast cancer
      Mirror movements 2
      Defects in RAD51 are found in a patient with microcephaly, mental retardation without bone marrow failure and pediatric cancers.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the RecA family. RAD51 subfamily.
      Contains 1 HhH domain.
    • Domain

      The nuclear localization may reside in the C-terminus (between 259 and 339 AA).
    • Post-translational
      modifications

      Ubiquitinated by the SCF(FBXO18) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, regulating RAD51 subcellular location and preventing its association with DNA.
      Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation of Thr-309 by CHEK1 may enhance association with chromatin at sites of DNA damage and promote DNA repair by homologous recombination. Phosphorylation by ABL1 inhibits function.
    • Cellular localization

      Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Mitochondrion matrix. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Colocalizes with RAD51AP1 and RPA2 to multiple nuclear foci upon induction of DNA damage. DNA damage induces an increase in nuclear levels. Together with FIGNL1, redistributed in discrete nuclear DNA damage-induced foci after ionizing radiation (IR) or camptothecin (CPT) treatment. Accumulated at sites of DNA damage in a SPIDR-dependent manner.

    Images

    • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab1837 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab1837, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was goat anti-mouse DyLight® 488 goat (IgG H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.

    Answer

    Thank you for your email. I am sorry i was not able to get back to you yesterday.

    I can confirm we have had no other reports of concerns with the lot of the antibody you have been using. I have therefore arranged for a new vial of this lot to be sent to you. If you have similar problems again, please do let me know. You would of course be covered by the Abpromise and would be entitled to a replacement antibody or refund if the problems persist.

    The order number is xxxxx (Purchase order number xxxxx). If you have any problems receiving this please do let me know.

    I hope this replacement vial performs better for you. I look forward to hearing how you get on.

    Until then, I wish you all the best with your research.

    Answer

    Thank you for your reply and for letting me know how you have been getting on.

    I am sorry that my suggestions have not improved the results observed. As you say, especially with the positive results with the rabbit monoclonal ab133534, it may be that the vial you received may have lost its activity. I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

    If you would like I can provide you with a free vial of ab1837 however, we only have the same lot you have been trying in stock. Alternatively I can provide you with a different antibody altogether such as the chicken polyclonal ab63802 or the rabbit polyclonal ab137323. Or if you would prefer, I could provide you with an alternative antibody against any target of your choice (as you already have ab133534 which seems to be working for you) or a credit note or refund.

    In order to arrange for any of these I would need confirmation of the order number on which ab1837 was received. Could you provide this, or if you do not have this information, the approximate delivery date and the delivery address used?

    Many thanks for your cooperation. I look forward to hearing how you would like to proceed.
