Gene: ERCC4 (ERCC excision repair 4, endonuclease catalytic subunit) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ERCC4
Name: ERCC excision repair 4, endonuclease catalytic subunit
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Contributes to 3' overhang single-stranded DNA endodeoxyribonuclease activity and DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA metabolic process; negative regulation of double-stranded telomeric DNA binding activity; and negative regulation of telomere maintenance. Localizes to the ERCC4-ERCC1 complex; nuclear chromosome, telomeric region; and nucleotide-excision repair factor 1 complex. Implicated in Fanconi anemia complementation group Q; XFE progeroid syndrome; pancreatic cancer; xeroderma pigmentosum; and xeroderma pigmentosum group F.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DNA excision repair protein ERCC-4; DNA repair endonuclease XPF; DNA repair protein complementing XP-F cells; ERCC11; excision repair cross-complementation group 4; excision repair cross-complementing rodent repair deficiency, complementation group 4; excision-repair, complementing defective, in Chinese hamster; FANCQ; RAD1; xeroderma pigmentosum group F-complementing protein; xeroderma pigmentosum, complementation group F; XFEPS; XPF
