About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for WRN Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the RecQ subfamily and the DEAH (Asp-Glu-Ala-His) subfamily of DNA and RNA
helicases. DNA helicases are involved in many aspects of DNA metabolism, including transcription, replication,
recombination, and repair. This protein contains a nuclear localization signal in the C-terminus and shows a
predominant nucleolar localization. It possesses an intrinsic 3' to 5' DNA helicase activity, and is also a 3' to
5' exonuclease. Based on interactions between this protein and Ku70/80 heterodimer in DNA end processing, this
protein may be involved in the repair of double strand DNA breaks. Defects in this gene are the cause of Werner
syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by premature aging. (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for WRN Gene: 
WRN (Werner syndrome, RecQ helicase-like) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with WRN include werner syndrome, and rothmund-thomson syndrome, and among its related super-pathways are Cell cycle Transition and termination of DNA replication and Non-homologous end-joining. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is RECQL4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: WRN_HUMAN, Q14191
Function: Multifunctional enzyme that has both magnesium and ATP-dependent DNA-helicase activity and 3'->5'
exonuclease activity towards double-stranded DNA with a 5'-overhang. Has no nuclease activity towards
single-stranded DNA or blunt-ended double-stranded DNA. Binds preferentially to DNA substrates containing
alternate secondary structures, such as replication forks and Holliday junctions. May play an important role in
the dissociation of joint DNA molecules that can arise as products of homologous recombination, at stalled
replication forks or during DNA repair. Alleviates stalling of DNA polymerases at the site of DNA lesions.
Important for genomic integrity. Plays a role in the formation of DNA replication focal centers; stably
associates with foci elements generating binding sites for RP-A (By similarity). Plays a role in double-strand
break repair after gamma-irradiation

  • Werner syndrome (WRN) [MIM:277700]: A rare autosomal recessive progeroid syndrome characterized by the
    premature onset of multiple age-related disorders, including atherosclerosis, cancer, non-insulin-dependent
    diabetes mellitus, ocular cataracts and osteoporosis. The major cause of death, at a median age of 47, is
    myocardial infarction. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry
  • Colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]: A complex disease characterized by malignant lesions arising from
    the inner wall of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum. Genetic alterations are often associated with
    progression from premalignant lesion (adenoma) to invasive adenocarcinoma. Risk factors for cancer of the colon
    and rectum include colon polyps, long-standing ulcerative colitis, and genetic family history. Note=The disease
    may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry
