REC8 encodes a member of the kleisin family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosome) protein partners. Additionally we are shipping REC8 Antibodies (74) and REC8 Kits (4) and many more products for this protein.

We fine-map three QTL and present strong evidence that genetic variants in REC8 and RNF212 (show RNF212 Proteins) influence genome-wide recombination rate, while genetic variants in PRDM9 (show PRDM9 Proteins) influence genome-wide hotspot usage.
Our genetic analysis demonstrates that cohesins containing STAG3 and REC8 are the main complex required for centromeric cohesion, and RAD21L (show RAD21L1 Proteins) cohesins are required for normal clustering of pericentromeric heterochromatin. Furthermore, the STAG3/REC8 and STAG3/RAD21L (show RAD21L1 Proteins) cohesins are the primary cohesins required for axis formation.
REC8-containing cohesin complexes provide canonical SCC (show CYP11A1 Proteins), not RAD21 (show RAD21 Proteins) or RAD21L (show RAD21L1 Proteins), at the prophase stage of meiosis I in spermatocytes.
To decipher the functions of the two meiosis-specific kleisins, REC8 or RAD21L (show RAD21L1 Proteins), together with the only meiosis-specific SMC protein (show SMC1A Proteins) SMC1b (show SMC1B Proteins), we generated Smc1b (show SMC1B Proteins)-/-Rec8-/- and Smc1b (show SMC1B Proteins)-/-Rad21L (show RAD21L1 Proteins)-/- mouse mutants.
Rec8 establishes cohesion when activated during DNA replication in fetal oocytes using tamoxifen-inducible Cre. In contrast, no new cohesion is detected when Rec8 is activated in arrested oocytes by tamoxifen despite cohesin synthesis.
Plk1 activity is required for meiotic spindle assembly and REC8 cleavage, with pPlk1Ser137 being the action executor, in mouse oocytes during meiotic division.
effects ofAte1ablation are inferred to be caused, at least in part, by the failure to destroy the C-terminal fragment of Rec8 in the absence of N-terminal arginylation.
Our findings strengthen the importance of RA and Dazl (show DAZL Proteins) in the meiotic transition, provide important details about the Stra8 pathway, and open avenues to investigate early meiosis through analysis of Rec8 induction and function
STAG3-REC8 cohesin complexes have a critical role in supporting meiotic chromosome structure and functions.
Findings indicate that cohesin-mediated long-range interactions facilitate discrete gene expression states within preexisting chromosomal compartments.
Data show that nociceptin induces Rec8 phosphorylation, triggering chromosome dynamics, in spermatocytes during meiosis in postnatal testes.
Study confirmed that REC8 was downregulated in gastric neoplasm, especially in the EBV-associated subtype, via promoter methylation.
REC8 being a novel major bona fide tumor suppressor gene and a robust epigenetic target of the PI3K (show PIK3CA Proteins) pathway. Aberrant inactivation of REC8 through hypermethylation by the PI3K (show PIK3CA Proteins) pathway may represent an important mechanism mediating the oncogenic functions of the PI3K (show PIK3CA Proteins) pathway
Indicate that polymorphisms of the Rec 8 gene are not a common cause of severe male factor infertility.
Data show that REC8 is constitutively expressed in tumour cells, along with SGOL1 (show SGOL1 Proteins) and SGOL2, and that REC8 becomes modified after irradiation.
The mouse ortholog of REC8L1 is required for proper synapsis of homologous chromosomes during meiosis
This gene encodes a member of the kleisin family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosome) protein partners. The protein localizes to the axial elements of chromosomes during meiosis in both oocytes and spermatocytes. In the mouse, the homologous protein is a key component of the meiotic cohesion complex, which regulates sister chromatid cohesion and recombination between homologous chromosomes. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been found for this gene.
