Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chromatin binding activity; single-stranded DNA 3'-5' exodeoxyribonuclease activity; and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in double-strand break repair via homologous recombination; fertilization; and meiosis I. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spermatogenic failure 22. Is expressed in genitourinary system. Orthologous to human MEIOB (meiosis specific with OB-fold).
