This gene encodes a protein containing multiple ankyrin repeats. Ankyrin domains function in protein-protein interactions in a variety of cellular processes. Mutations in this gene are associated with a Rett syndrome (RTT)-like phenotype. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2017]
GeneCards Summary for ANKRD31 Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ANKRD31 Gene
Required for DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) formation during meiotic recombination. Regulates the spatial and temporal patterns of pre-DSB recombinosome assembly and recombination activity by acting as a scaffold that anchors REC114 and other factors to specific genomic locations, thereby regulating DSB formation. Plays a key role in recombination in the pseudoautosomal regions of sex chromosomes.
