Summaries for REC8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for REC8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the kleisin family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosome) protein partners. The protein localizes to the axial elements of chromosomes during meiosis in both oocytes and spermatocytes. In the mouse, the homologous protein is a key component of the meiotic cohesion complex, which regulates sister chromatid cohesion and recombination between homologous chromosomes. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for REC8 Gene

REC8 (REC8 Meiotic Recombination Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Oocyte meiosis.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for REC8 Gene

  • Required during meiosis for separation of sister chromatids and homologous chromosomes. Proteolytic cleavage of REC8 on chromosome arms by separin during anaphase I allows for homologous chromosome separation in meiosis I and cleavage of REC8 on centromeres during anaphase II allows for sister chromatid separation in meiosis II (By similarity).

Localization for REC8 Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for REC8 Gene

Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=In meiotic chromosomes, localized along axial elements in prophase from the leptotene to diplotene stages. At later prophase stages, diakinesis and metaphase I, localized along interstitial axes of chromosomes including both centromere and arm regions. No longer detected in arm regions in anaphase I but persists on centromere regions until metaphase II (By similarity). Localised to centromeres and spindle poles in endopolyploid tumor cells. {ECO:0000250}.
