Protein Red1/Rec10 (IPR012491)

Short name: Red1/Rec10

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Budding yeast Red1 is 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). 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 in SC, Red1 also couples checkpoint signalling to SC formation [PMID: 20534433].

This entry also includes fission yeast Rec10, which is involved primarily in the early steps of meiotic recombination localised to chromosome III [PMID: 7586030].
