Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ATPase activity, coupled; chromatin binding activity; and nucleic acid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA geometric change; cellular response to bleomycin; and positive regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Predicted to colocalize with the Ctf18 RFC-like complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Warsaw breakage syndrome. Is expressed in allantois; embryo; placenta; and yolk sac endoderm. Orthologous to several human genes including DDX11 (DEAD/H-box helicase 11).
