Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-directed DNA polymerase activity. Involved in double-strand break repair via alternative nonhomologous end joining; negative regulation of double-strand break repair via homologous recombination; and somatic hypermutation of immunoglobulin genes. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human POLQ (DNA polymerase theta).
