Summaries for ERCC6L2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ERCC6L2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Snf2 family of helicase-like proteins. The encoded protein may play a role in DNA repair and mitochondrial function. Mutations in this gene have been associated with bone marrow failure syndrome 2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

  • Bone marrow failure syndrome 2 (BMFS2) [MIM:615715]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by trilineage bone marrow failure, bone marrow hypocellularity, learning difficulties, and microcephaly. Insufficient hematopoiesis results in peripheral blood cytopenias, affecting myeloid, erythroid and megakaryocyte lines. Cutaneous features and increased chromosome breakage are not features. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24507776}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
