RAD51D Involved in the homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathway of double-stranded DNA breaks arising during DNA replication or induced by DNA-damaging agents. The BCDX2 complex binds single-stranded DNA, single-stranded gaps in duplex DNA and specifically to nicks in duplex DNA. Defects in RAD51D are a cause of susceptibility to familial breast-ovarian cancer type 4 (BROVCA4). A condition associated with familial predisposition to cancer of the breast and ovaries. Characteristic features in affected families are an early age of onset of breast cancer (often before age 50), increased chance of bilateral cancers (cancer that develop in both breasts, or both ovaries, independently), frequent occurrence of breast cancer among men, increased incidence of tumors of other specific organs, such as the prostate. Belongs to the RecA family. RAD51 subfamily. 8 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
