Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable DNA topoisomerase type I (single strand cut, ATP-independent) activity and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA metabolic process and chromosome separation. Predicted to be located in PML body. Predicted to be part of RecQ family helicase-topoisomerase III complex. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; gut; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive progressive external ophthalmoplegia with mitochondrial DNA deletions 5. Orthologous to human TOP3A (DNA topoisomerase III alpha).
