NCBI Description of ERCC6

This gene encodes a DNA-binding protein that is important in transcription-coupled excision repair. The encoded protein has ATP-stimulated ATPase activity, interacts with several transcription and excision repair proteins, and may promote complex formation at DNA repair sites. Mutations in this gene are associated with Cockayne syndrome type B and cerebrooculofacioskeletal syndrome 1. Naturally-occurring readthrough transcription occurs between this gene and the adjacent PGBD3 gene (GeneID:267004), and results in a fusion protein that shares sequence with the product of each individual gene. The readthrough locus is represented by GeneID:101243544. Sequence Note: This RefSeq record was created from transcript and genomic sequence data to make the sequence consistent with the reference genome assembly. The genomic coordinates used for the transcript record were based on transcript alignments.
