Gene: ERCC6 (ERCC excision repair 6, chromatin remodeling factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ERCC6
Name: ERCC excision repair 6, chromatin remodeling factor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP binding activity; protein C-terminus binding activity; and protein tyrosine kinase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA repair; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and regulation of double-strand break repair. Localizes to the nuclear lumen and site of DNA damage. Implicated in Cockayne syndrome; UV-sensitive syndrome; age related macular degeneration 5; lung cancer; and premature ovarian failure. Biomarker of macular degeneration.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
