Gene: Rec8 (REC8 meiotic recombination protein) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rec8
Name: REC8 meiotic recombination protein
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gamete generation; seminiferous tubule development; and synaptonemal complex assembly. Localizes to the condensed nuclear chromosome and male germ cell nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human REC8 (REC8 meiotic recombination protein); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AW546880; cohesin Rec8p; meiotic cohesin REC8; meiotic cohesion Rec8; meiotic recombination protein REC8 homolog; mrec; REC8 homolog; REC8-like 1; rec8-like 1 (yeast); Rec8L1
