|Gene Description||RAD21, RAD21 cohesin complex component, is a double-strand-break repair protein and member of the cohesion complex, which is responsible for maintaining sister chromatid segregation during the S-phase of the mitotic cycle (PMID: 22145905). Amplification and overexpression of Rad21 has been observed in several cancer types including breast, prostate, colorectal (PMID: 21255398, PMID: 24548858), and mutations have been identified in acute myeloid leukemia (PMID: 29288251).|

|RAD21 wild-type||breast cancer||not applicable||N/A||Preclinical||Emerging||In a preclinical study, siRNA inhibition of RAD21 in breast cancer cells resulted in increased sensitivity to Toposaur (etoposide) in culture, suggesting RAD21 may be a potential therapeutic target for enhanced sensitivity to chemotherapeutics (PMID: 15767545).||15767545|
