Gene: REC8 (REC8 meiotic recombination protein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: REC8
Name: REC8 meiotic recombination protein
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in double-strand break repair; meiotic cell cycle; and sister chromatid cohesion. Predicted to localize to the meiotic cohesin complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
