PALB2 partner and localizer of BRCA2

Gene ID: 79728, updated on 22-Oct-2018
Also known as: FANCN; PNCA3


This gene encodes a protein that may function in tumor suppression. This protein binds to and colocalizes with the breast cancer 2 early onset protein (BRCA2) in nuclear foci and likely permits the stable intranuclear localization and accumulation of BRCA2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
