Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have histone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in double-strand break repair via homologous recombination and replication fork processing. Predicted to colocalize with DNA replication factor A complex; FACT complex; and MCM complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain ventricular layer; cerebellum; sensory organ; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, Sponastrime type. Orthologous to human TONSL (tonsoku like, DNA repair protein).
