Summaries for NHEJ1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NHEJ1 Gene

  • Double-strand breaks in DNA result from genotoxic stresses and are among the most damaging of DNA lesions. This gene encodes a DNA repair factor essential for the nonhomologous end-joining pathway, which preferentially mediates repair of double-stranded breaks. Mutations in this gene cause different kinds of severe combined immunodeficiency disorders. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NHEJ1 Gene

NHEJ1 (Non-Homologous End Joining Factor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NHEJ1 include Severe Combined Immunodeficiency With Microcephaly, Growth Retardation, And Sensitivity To Ionizing Radiation and Cernunnos-Xlf Deficiency. Among its related pathways are DNA Double-Strand Break Repair and DNA Damage.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NHEJ1 Gene

  • DNA repair protein involved in DNA nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) required for double-strand break (DSB) repair and V(D)J recombination. May serve as a bridge between XRCC4 and the other NHEJ factors located at DNA ends, or may participate in reconfiguration of the end bound NHEJ factors to allow XRCC4 access to the DNA termini. It may act in concert with XRCC6/XRCC5 (Ku) to stimulate XRCC4-mediated joining of blunt ends and several types of mismatched ends that are noncomplementary or partially complementary (PubMed:16439204, PubMed:16439205, PubMed:17470781). Binds DNA in a length-dependent manner (PubMed:17317666).

  • Severe combined immunodeficiency due to NHEJ1 deficiency (NHEJ1-SCID) [MIM:611291]: SCID refers to a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leukopenia and low or absent antibody levels. Patients with SCID present in infancy with recurrent, persistent infections by opportunistic organisms. The common characteristic of all types of SCID is absence of T-cell-mediated cellular immunity due to a defect in T-cell development. NHEJ1-SCID is characterized by a profound T- and B-lymphocytopenia associated with increased cellular sensitivity to ionizing radiation, microcephaly and growth retardation. Some patients may manifest SCID with sensitivity to ionizing radiation without microcephaly and mild growth retardation, probably due to hypomorphic NHEJ1 mutations. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16439204, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16439205}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
