GeneCards Summary for MEI4 Gene
MEI4 (Meiotic Double-Stranded Break Formation Protein 4) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MEI4 Gene
Required for DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) formation in unsynapsed regions during meiotic recombination. Probably acts by forming a complex with IHO1/CCDC36 and REC114, which activates DSBs formation in unsynapsed regions, an essential step to ensure completion of synapsis.
