Gene: POLG (DNA polymerase gamma, catalytic subunit) Homo sapiens
Symbol: POLG
Name: DNA polymerase gamma, catalytic subunit
Description: Exhibits DNA-directed DNA polymerase activity; chromatin binding activity; and protease binding activity. Involved in DNA-dependent DNA replication and base-excision repair, gap-filling. Localizes to the gamma DNA polymerase complex and mitochondrial nucleoid. Implicated in several diseases, including mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (multiple); mitochondrial myopathy (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); ovarian disease (multiple); and sensory ataxic neuropathy, dysarthria, and ophthalmoparesis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
