Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits TFIID-class transcription factor complex binding activity and promoter-specific chromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to 3' overhang single-stranded DNA endodeoxyribonuclease activity and DNA binding activity. Involved in DNA repair; UV protection; and regulation of autophagy. Predicted to localize to ERCC4-ERCC1 complex; nuclear chromosome, telomeric region; and nucleotide-excision repair factor 1 complex. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Used to study xeroderma pigmentosum group F. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fanconi anemia complementation group Q; XFE progeroid syndrome; pancreatic cancer; xeroderma pigmentosum; and xeroderma pigmentosum group F. Orthologous to human ERCC4 (ERCC excision repair 4, endonuclease catalytic subunit).
