Entrez Gene Summary for FANCL Gene

  • The Fanconi anemia complementation group (FANC) currently includes FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD1 (also called BRCA2), FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, FANCI, FANCJ (also called BRIP1), FANCL, FANCM and FANCN (also called PALB2). The previously defined group FANCH is the same as FANCA. Fanconi anemia is a genetically heterogeneous recessive disorder characterized by cytogenetic instability, hypersensitivity to DNA crosslinking agents, increased chromosomal breakage, and defective DNA repair. The members of the Fanconi anemia complementation group do not share sequence similarity; they are related by their assembly into a common nuclear protein complex. This gene encodes the protein for complementation group L. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FANCL Gene

FANCL (Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group L) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FANCL include fanconi anemia, complementation group l and fancl-related fanconi anemia. Among its related pathways are BRCA1 Pathway and DNA damage_Role of Brca1 and Brca2 in DNA repair. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FANCL Gene

  • Ubiquitin ligase protein that mediates monoubiquitination of FANCD2, a key step in the DNA damage pathway. Also mediates monoubiquitination of FANCI. 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.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with GGN (By similarity). Belongs to the multisubunit FA complex composed of FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, FANCL/PHF9 and FANCM. The complex is not found in FA patients. In complex with FANCF, FANCA and FANCG, but not with FANCC, nor FANCE, interacts with HES1; this interaction may be essential for the stability and nuclear localization of FA core complex proteins. Interacts with FANCI. Interacts (via the RING-type zinc finger) with UBE2T and UBE2W.

Disorders for FANCL Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for FANCL Gene (608111)


  • Fanconi anemia complementation group L (FANCL) [MIM:614083]: 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. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12973351}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
