In order to target the RAD51 gene, a very specific experimental procedure was followed, and it is clearly outlined in this paper. This procedure was designed to produce RAD51 mutant clones, and this was done by causing a disruption to both of the alleles in the RAD51 gene.… This was done to obtain the RAD51+/- cells (EMBO, 1998). Then, the RAD51+/- cells have…
