PA1-4985 detects Rad51 from human, mouse, and chicken samples.
PA1-4985 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunocytochemistry and indirect immunofluorescence applications. By Western blot, this antibody detects a 37 kDa band representing Rad51 from Hela cells. GFP-tagging of Rad51 protein at either N- or C- terminus inactivates the function of Rad51 and therefore it cannot be used for the study of foci formation instead of the antibody.
The PA1-4985 immunogen is full-length recombinant Rap51 protein.
RAD51 plays a critical role in homologous strand exchange, a key step in DNA repair through homologous recobination. It binds to single and double-stranded DNA and exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity. RAD51 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. It binds to a single-stranded DNA in an ATP-dependent manner to form nucleoprotein filaments which are essential for the homology search and strand exchange. Mutations in the gene can results in breast cancer, mirror movements 2 and fanconi anemia.
