Summaries for RAD54L Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RAD54L Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the DEAD-like helicase superfamily, and shares similarity with Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad54, a protein known to be involved in the homologous recombination and repair of DNA. This protein has been shown to play a role in homologous recombination related repair of DNA double-strand breaks. The binding of this protein to double-strand DNA induces a DNA topological change, which is thought to facilitate homologous DNA paring, and stimulate DNA recombination. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RAD54L Gene

RAD54L (RAD54 Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RAD54L include Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin, Familial and Colon Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway and Resolution of D-loop Structures through Synthesis-Dependent Strand Annealing (SDSA). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RAD54B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RAD54L Gene

  • Involved in DNA repair and mitotic recombination. Functions in the recombinational DNA repair (RAD52) pathway. Dissociates RAD51 from nucleoprotein filaments formed on dsDNA. Could be involved in the turnover of RAD51 protein-dsDNA filaments (By similarity). May play also an essential role in telomere length maintenance and telomere capping in mammalian cells.
