ERCC4 ERCC excision repair 4, endonuclease catalytic subunit

Also known as: XPF; RAD1; FANCQ; XFEPS; ERCC11

Summary

The protein encoded by this gene forms a complex with ERCC1 and is involved in the 5' incision made during nucleotide excision repair. This complex is a structure specific DNA repair endonuclease that interacts with EME1. Defects in this gene are a cause of xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group F (XP-F), or xeroderma pigmentosum VI (XP6).[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
