Human(10111) Summary: The protein encoded by this gene is highly similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad50, a protein involved in DNA double-strand break repair. This protein forms a complex with MRE11 and NBS1. The protein complex binds to DNA and displays numerous enzymatic activities that are required for nonhomologous joining of DNA ends. This protein, cooperating with its partners, is important for DNA double-strand break repair, cell cycle checkpoint activation, telomere maintenance, and meiotic recombination. Knockout studies of the mouse homolog suggest this gene is essential for cell growth and viability. Mutations in this gene are the cause of Nijmegen breakage syndrome-like disorder.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]

MISSION® siRNAs have been designed using a world-class siRNA design algorithm licensed from Rosetta Inpharmatics, a leader in advanced siRNA research. The Rosetta-powered siRNA design algorithm has been optimized with over 3 years of continuous development for enhanced performance in RNAi applications. New and critical siRNA design rules incorporated into the latest algorithm lead to increased target specificity and knockdown for low abundance messages.
Validated MISSION® siRNAs have been functionally validated in Hela cells by Sigma scientists to Knockdown gene expression by 75% or greater. With Validated MISSION® siRNAs, we have done the upfront validation work, so that you do not have to.
