Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits crossover junction endodeoxyribonuclease activity. Predicted to contribute to four-way junction DNA binding activity. Involved in meiotic nuclear division; spermatogenesis; and telomere maintenance via recombination. Localizes to the nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the Holliday junction resolvase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fanconi anemia complementation group O and hereditary breast ovarian cancer syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Orthologous to human RAD51C (RAD51 paralog C).
