Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA ligase (ATP) activity. Involved in double-strand break repair via alternative nonhomologous end joining; mitochondrial DNA repair; and negative regulation of DNA recombination. Localizes to the synaptonemal complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; gonad; hemolymphoid system gland; liver; and lung. Orthologous to human LIG3 (DNA ligase 3).
