Summary
Predicted to enable several functions, including chromatin binding activity; mismatch repair complex binding activity; and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to contribute to single-stranded DNA helicase activity. Involved in double-strand break repair via homologous recombination; female gamete generation; and male gamete generation. Part of MCM8-MCM9 complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; sensory organ; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary ovarian insufficiency 10. Orthologous to human MCM8 (minichromosome maintenance 8 homologous recombination repair factor).

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
