Summaries for ERCC6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ERCC6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a DNA-binding protein that is important in transcription-coupled excision repair. The encoded protein has ATP-stimulated ATPase activity, interacts with several transcription and excision repair proteins, and may promote complex formation at DNA repair sites. Mutations in this gene are associated with Cockayne syndrome type B and cerebrooculofacioskeletal syndrome 1. Naturally-occurring readthrough transcription occurs between this gene and the adjacent PGBD3 gene (GeneID:267004), and results in a fusion protein that shares sequence with the product of each individual gene. The readthrough locus is represented by GeneID:101243544. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2013]

GeneCards Summary for ERCC6 Gene

ERCC6 (Excision Repair Cross-Complementation Group 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ERCC6 include cerebrooculofacioskeletal syndrome 1 and de sanctis-cacchione syndrome. Among its related pathways are Chks in Checkpoint Regulation and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and protein complex binding. An important paralog of this gene is ERCC6L2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ERCC6 Gene

  • Essential factor involved in transcription-coupled nucleotide excision repair which allows RNA polymerase II-blocking lesions to be rapidly removed from the transcribed strand of active genes. Upon DNA-binding, it locally modifies DNA conformation by wrapping the DNA around itself, thereby modifying the interface between stalled RNA polymerase II and DNA. It is required for transcription-coupled repair complex formation. It recruits the CSA complex (DCX(ERCC8) complex), nucleotide excision repair proteins and EP300 to the at sites of RNA polymerase II-blocking lesions.

ERCC6_HUMAN
  • Cockayne syndrome B (CSB) [MIM:133540]: A rare disorder characterized by cutaneous sensitivity to sunlight, abnormal and slow growth, cachectic dwarfism, progeroid appearance, progressive pigmentary retinopathy and sensorineural deafness. There is delayed neural development and severe progressive neurologic degeneration resulting in mental retardation. Two clinical forms are recognized: in the classical form or Cockayne syndrome type 1, the symptoms are progressive and typically become apparent within the first few years or life; the less common Cockayne syndrome type 2 is characterized by more severe symptoms that manifest prenatally. Cockayne syndrome shows some overlap with certain forms of xeroderma pigmentosum. Unlike xeroderma pigmentosum, patients with Cockayne syndrome do not manifest increased freckling and other pigmentation abnormalities in the skin and have no significant increase in skin cancer. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19894250, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9443879}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cerebro-oculo-facio-skeletal syndrome 1 (COFS1) [MIM:214150]: A disorder of prenatal onset characterized by microcephaly, congenital cataracts, facial dysmorphism, neurogenic arthrogryposis, growth failure and severe psychomotor retardation. COFS is considered to be part of the nucleotide-excision repair disorders spectrum that include also xeroderma pigmentosum, trichothiodystrophy and Cockayne syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19894250}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • De Sanctis-Cacchione syndrome (DSC) [MIM:278800]: An autosomal recessive syndrome consisting of xeroderma pigmentosum associated with severe neurological and developmental involvement. In addition to the clinical signs of xeroderma pigmentosum, patients present with mental retardation, dwarfism, gonadal hypoplasia, microcephaly and various neurologic complications of early onset. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Macular degeneration, age-related, 5 (ARMD5) [MIM:613761]: A form of age-related macular degeneration, a multifactorial eye disease and the most common cause of irreversible vision loss in the developed world. In most patients, the disease is manifest as ophthalmoscopically visible yellowish accumulations of protein and lipid that lie beneath the retinal pigment epithelium and within an elastin-containing structure known as Bruch membrane. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16754848}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • UV-sensitive syndrome 1 (UVSS1) [MIM:600630]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by cutaneous photosensitivity and mild freckling in the absence of neurological abnormalities or skin tumors. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15486090}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
