XRCC3 [ENSP00000343392]
 
X-ray repair complementing defective repair in Chinese hamster cells 3; Involved in the homologous recombination repair (HRR) pathway of double-stranded DNA, thought to repair chromosomal fragmentation, translocations and deletions
RAD51 [ENSP00000267868]
 
RAD51 homolog (RecA homolog, E. coli) (S. cerevisiae); May participate in a common DNA damage response pathway associated with the activation of homologous recombination and double-strand break repair. Binds to single and double stranded DNA and exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity. Underwinds duplex DNA and forms helical nucleoprotein filaments
