    text
  • replaces RAD21 in premeiotic S phase, becomes detectable on the axial elements in leptotene, and stays on the axial/lateral elements until mid pachytene
  • localizes along axial elements in early meiotic prophase, in a manner that is spatiotemporally different to either REC8 or RAD21
  • basic FUNCTION
  • implicated in DNA repair
  • cohesin complexes containing RAD21L1 may be involved in synapsis initiation and crossover recombination between homologous chromosomes
  • cohesin complex (CC), meiotic-specific, constituted by this alpha-kleisin and expand the view of REC8 as the only specific meiotic alpha-kleisin
  • essential for male fertility and in females for the maintenance of fertility during natural aging

    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • male mice lacking Rad21l are defective in full synapsis of homologous chromosomes at meiotic prophase I, which provokes an arrest at zygotene and leads to total azoospermia and consequently infertility, however Rad21l-deficient females are fertile but develop an age-dependent sterility
