GeneCards Summary for MUS81 Gene
MUS81 (MUS81 Structure-Specific Endonuclease Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MUS81 include Congenital Hypoplastic Anemia and Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group A. Among its related pathways are Fanconi anemia pathway and DNA Double-Strand Break Repair. GO annotations related to this gene include nuclease activity and 3-flap endonuclease activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MUS81 Gene
Interacts with EME1 and EME2 to form a DNA structure-specific endonuclease with substrate preference for branched DNA structures with a 5-end at the branch nick. Typical substrates include 3-flap structures, replication forks and nicked Holliday junctions. May be required in mitosis for the processing of stalled or collapsed replication forks.
