Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable identical protein binding activity; nuclease activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA binding activity and DNA helicase activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including double-strand break repair; homologous chromosome pairing at meiosis; and mitotic DNA damage checkpoint signaling. Located in PML body. Colocalizes with chromosome, telomeric region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast carcinoma; endometrial cancer; stomach carcinoma; and urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human MRE11 (MRE11 homolog, double strand break repair nuclease).
