Western blot analysis of RAD9A polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB4457) in HeLa cell line lysates (35 ug/lane). Rad9 (arrow) was detected using the purified RAD9A polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB4457) (1 : 60 dilution).
This gene product is highly similar to Schizosaccharomyces pombe rad9, a cell cycle checkpoint protein required for cell cycle arrest and DNA damage repair in response to DNA damage. This protein is found to possess 3' to 5' exonuclease activity, which may contribute to its role in sensing and repairing DNA damage. It forms a checkpoint protein complex with RAD1 and HUS1. This complex is recruited by checkpoint protein RAD17 to the sites of DNA damage, which is thought to be important for triggering the checkpoint-signaling cascade. Use of alternative polyA sites has been noted for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
