Summaries for FANCM Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FANCM 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 M. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015]

GeneCards Summary for FANCM Gene

FANCM (Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group M) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FANCM include fancm-related fanconi anemia and esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula. Among its related pathways are DNA Double-Strand Break Repair and Fanconi anemia pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and hydrolase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FANCM Gene

  • ATPase required for FANCD2 ubiquitination, a key reaction in DNA repair. Binds to ssDNA but not to dsDNA. Recruited to forks stalled by DNA interstrand cross-links, and required for cellular resistance to such lesions.

  • Fanconi anemia complementation group M (FANCM) [MIM:614087]: 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:16116422}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
