Short name: Rec10_Red1

Family relationships

None.

Description

Budding yeast Red1 and its homologue from S. pombe, Red10, are involved in meiotic recombination and chromosome segregation during homologous chromosome formation. Red1 is a component of the axial element protein cores in synaptonemal complexes (SC) [PMID: 15226405]. Synaptonemal complexes are found at synapses between homologous chromosomes during meiosis, and form when sister chromatids condense upon axial elements [PMID: 11779793]. Besides its structural role is SC, Red1 also couples checkpoint signalling to SC formation [PMID: 20534433].
