Protein FULL name:

cell cycle checkpoint protein RAD17 [Mus musculus].

Rad17 (Mus musculus) is product of expression of Rad17 gene.

FUNCTION: Essential for sustained cell growth, maintenance of chromosomal stability, and ATR-dependent checkpoint activation upon DNA damage. Has a weak ATPase activity required for binding to chromatin. Participates in the recruitment of the RAD1-RAD9- HUS1 complex onto chromatin, and in CHEK1 activation. May also serve as a sensor of DNA replication progression, and may be involved in homologous recombination (By similarity). Essential for embryonic development. May be involved in homologous recombination.

SUBUNIT: Part of a DNA-binding complex containing RFC2, RFC3, RFC4 and RFC5. Interacts with RAD1 and RAD9 within the RAD1-RAD9-HUS1 complex. Interacts with RAD9B, POLE, NHP2L1 and MCM7. DNA damage promotes interaction with ATR or ATM and disrupts interaction with the RAD1-RAD9-HUS1 complex (By similarity).

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity). Note=Phosphorylated form redistributes to discrete nuclear foci upon DNA damage (By similarity).

TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Ubiquitous at low levels. Highly expressed in testis, where it is expressed in spermatogonia, spermatocytes and spermatids, but absent in mature spermatozoa (at protein level).

PTM: Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation on Ser-647 and Ser-657 is cell cycle-regulated, enhanced by genotoxic stress, and required for activation of checkpoint signaling.

DISRUPTION PHENOTYPE: Mice show numerous defects in embryonic development, starting at E8.5.

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the rad17/RAD24 family.
