UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCDC79 Gene
Meiosis-specific telomere-associated protein involved in meiotic telomere clustering, also named bouquet formation, the telomere-mediated chromosomal movement along the nuclear envelope which is crucial for homologous pairing and synapsis. Probably acts as a hub for the assembly of a conserved meiotic telomere complex required for chromosome movements via interaction with TERF1. Promotes telomere association with the nuclear envelope and deposition of the SUN-KASH/LINC complex. Also recruits cohesin to telomeres to develop structural rigidity (By similarity).
