Summaries for RFC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RFC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the activator 1 small subunits family. The elongation of primed DNA templates by DNA polymerase delta and epsilon requires the action of the accessory proteins, proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and replication factor C (RFC). Replication factor C, also called activator 1, is a protein complex consisting of five distinct subunits. This gene encodes the 40 kD subunit, which has been shown to be responsible for binding ATP and may help promote cell survival. Disruption of this gene is associated with Williams syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. A pseudogene of this gene has been defined on chromosome 2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for RFC2 Gene

RFC2 (Replication Factor C (Activator 1) 2, 40kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RFC2 include blepharophimosis, epicanthus inversus, and ptosis, type 1 and williams-beuren syndrome. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Homologous DNA Pairing and Strand Exchange. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium chelatase activity and DNA clamp loader activity.

The former interacts with PCNA in the presence of ATP, while the latter has ATPase activity but is not stimulated by PCNA. RFC2 also interacts with PRKAR1A; the complex may be involved in cell survival.
