FANCL gene

FA complementation group L

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a ubiquitin ligase that is a member of the Fanconi anemia complementation group (FANC). Members of this group are related by their assembly into a common nuclear protein complex rather than by sequence similarity. This gene encodes the protein for complementation group L that mediates monoubiquitination of FANCD2 as well as FANCI. Fanconi anemia is a genetically heterogeneous recessive disorder characterized by cytogenetic instability, hypersensitivity to DNA crosslinking agents, increased chromosomal breakage, and defective DNA repair. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2018]

From UniProt:

Ubiquitin ligase protein that mediates monoubiquitination of FANCD2 in the presence of UBE2T, a key step in the DNA damage pathway (PubMed:12973351, PubMed:16916645, PubMed:17938197, PubMed:19111657, PubMed:24389026). Also mediates monoubiquitination of FANCI (PubMed:19589784). May stimulate the ubiquitin release from UBE2W. May be required for proper primordial germ cell proliferation in the embryonic stage, whereas it is probably not needed for spermatogonial proliferation after birth.

  • Fanconi anemia, complementation group L

From UniProt:

Fanconi anemia complementation group L (FANCL): A disorder affecting all bone marrow elements and resulting in anemia, leukopenia and thrombopenia. It is associated with cardiac, renal and limb malformations, dermal pigmentary changes, and a predisposition to the development of malignancies. At the cellular level it is associated with hypersensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, chromosomal instability (increased chromosome breakage) and defective DNA repair. [MIM:614083]
