This gene encodes a zinc finger protein that may play a role in the repair of DNA damage and maintenance of genome stability. The N-terminal C2H2 zinc finger motif is required to form a protein complex with PARP1 and MRE11, which are known to be involved in the restart of stalled DNA replication forks. A mutation in this gene may be associated with breast cancer susceptibility. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2020]

May play a role in uric acid excretion.
Involved in the regulation of neurogenesis. Negatively regulates neurite outgrowth (PubMed:17389905). Involved in the morphogenesis of basket cells in the somatosensory cortex during embryogenesis. Involved in the positive regulation of oligodendrocyte differentiation during postnatal growth. Involved in dendritic arborization, morphogenesis of spine density dendrite, and establishment of postsynaptic dendrite density in cortical pyramidal neurons (By similarity). Involved in homologous recombination (HR) repair pathway. Required for proper resolution of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) by HR. Is required for recovery of stalled replication forks, and directly contributes to genomic stability. Interacts with PARP1 and mediates MRE11-dependent DNA end resection during replication fork recovery (PubMed:23966166). Contributes to genomic stability by preventing telomere dysfunction (PubMed:23776040).
