NameRAD1
OrganismSaccharomyces cerevisiae (replicative)
Aging PhenotypeNo effect on life-span
Allele TypeDeletion
StrainPSY316
DescriptionDeletion of RAD1 has no effect on life span (Park et al., 1999).
Gene FunctionFunctions in complex with RAD10 (Tomkinson et al., 1994). Required for repair of double-strand DNA breaks by single-strand annealing (Ivanov and Haber, 1995) and for UV-excision repair (Wang et al., 1993).
Other PhenotypesSensitive to UV-induced DNA damage (Kadyk and Hartwell, 1993).
HomologsS.p. rad16
C.e. C47D12.8
D.m. MEI-9
M.m. ERCC4
H.s. ERCC4
