Exhibits damaged DNA binding activity. Involved in DNA metabolic process; intra-S DNA damage checkpoint; and response to UV-B. Localizes to the nucleus and site of DNA damage. Used to study lung cancer and xeroderma pigmentosum group C. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer; serous cystadenocarcinoma; xeroderma pigmentosum; and xeroderma pigmentosum group C. Orthologous to human XPC (XPC complex subunit, DNA damage recognition and repair factor).
