Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have several functions, including gamma-tubulin binding activity; histone acetyltransferase activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA metabolic process; gamete generation; and signal transduction by p53 class mediator. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study Fanconi anemia complementation group D1 and breast cancer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Fanconi anemia (multiple); brain cancer (multiple); hereditary breast ovarian cancer syndrome; melanoma (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; early embryo; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to human BRCA2 (BRCA2 DNA repair associated).
