RAD9 is a component of the 9-1-1 cell cycle checkpoint response complex that plays a major role in DNA repair. The 9-1-1 complex is recruited to DNA lesions upon damage by the RAD17-replication factor C clamp loader complex. RAD9 acts as a sliding clamp platform on DNA for several proteins involved in long-patch base excision repair.
