|Description: DNA repair protein RAD51 homolog 1 (hRAD51) (HsRAD51).|
Synonyms: RAD51A, RECA
Ensembl ID: ENSG00000051180
UniprotKB/SwissProt: RAD51_HUMAN (Q06609)
Function: May participate in a common DNA damage response pathway associated with the activation of homologous recombination and double-strand break repair. Binds to single and double stranded DNA and exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity. Underwinds duplex DNA and forms helical nucleoprotein filaments.
