From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this ubiquitously expressed gene interacts with the tumor suppressing BRCA1 (breast cancer 1) protein and and the ATM (ataxia telangiectasia mutated) protein. ATM is thought to be a master controller of cell cycle checkpoint signalling pathways that are required for cellular responses to DNA damage such as double-strand breaks that are induced by ionizing radiation and complexes with BRCA1 in the multi-protein complex BASC (BRAC1-associated genome surveillance complex). The protein encoded by this gene is thought to play a role in the DNA damage pathway regulated by BRCA1 and ATM. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]
Involved in DNA damage response; activates kinases ATM, SMC1A and PRKDC by modulating their phosphorylation status following ionizing radiation (IR) stress (PubMed:16452482, PubMed:22977523). Plays a role in regulating mitochondrial function and cell proliferation (PubMed:25070371). Required for protein stability of MTOR and MTOR-related proteins, and cell cycle progress by growth factors (PubMed:25657994).

- NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDER WITH CEREBELLAR ATROPHY AND WITH OR WITHOUT SEIZURES
- Rigidity and multifocal seizure syndrome, lethal neonatal
Rigidity and multifocal seizure syndrome, lethal neonatal (RMFSL): A lethal, neonatal, neurologic disorder characterized by episodic jerking that is apparent in utero, lack of psychomotor development, axial and limb rigidity, frequent multifocal seizures, and dysautonomia. At birth, affected individuals have small heads, overlapping cranial sutures, small or absent fontanels, and depressed frontal bones. Infants show poorly responsive focal jerks of the tongue, face and arms in a nearly continuous sequence throughout life. [MIM:614498]
