Entrez Gene Summary for MRE11 Gene

  • This gene encodes a nuclear protein involved in homologous recombination, telomere length maintenance, and DNA double-strand break repair. By itself, the protein has 3' to 5' exonuclease activity and endonuclease activity. The protein forms a complex with the RAD50 homolog; this complex is required for nonhomologous joining of DNA ends and possesses increased single-stranded DNA endonuclease and 3' to 5' exonuclease activities. In conjunction with a DNA ligase, this protein promotes the joining of noncomplementary ends in vitro using short homologies near the ends of the DNA fragments. This gene has a pseudogene on chromosome 3. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MRE11 Gene

MRE11 (MRE11 Homolog, Double Strand Break Repair Nuclease) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MRE11 include Ataxia-Telangiectasia-Like Disorder 1 and Nijmegen Breakage Syndrome-Like Disorder. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MRE11 Gene

  • Component of the MRN complex, which plays a central role in double-strand break (DSB) repair, DNA recombination, maintenance of telomere integrity and meiosis. The complex possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and double-strand-specific 3-5 exonuclease activity, which are provided by MRE11. RAD50 may be required to bind DNA ends and hold them in close proximity. This could facilitate searches for short or long regions of sequence homology in the recombining DNA templates, and may also stimulate the activity of DNA ligases and/or restrict the nuclease activity of MRE11 to prevent nucleolytic degradation past a given point (PubMed:9651580, PubMed:9590181, PubMed:9705271, PubMed:11741547). The complex may also be required for DNA damage signaling via activation of the ATM kinase (PubMed:15064416). In telomeres the MRN complex may modulate t-loop formation (PubMed:10888888).

  • Ataxia-telangiectasia-like disorder 1 (ATLD1) [MIM:604391]: A rare disorder characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia, dysarthria, abnormal eye movements, and absence of telangiectasia. ATLD patients show normal levels of total IgG, IgA and IgM, although there may be reduced levels of specific functional antibodies. At the cellular level, ATLD exhibits hypersensitivity to ionizing radiation and radioresistant DNA synthesis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10612394}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Defects in MRE11 can be a cause of nephronophthisis-related ciliopathies (NPHP-RC), a group of recessive diseases that affect kidney, retina and brain. A homozygous truncating mutation MRE11 has been found in patients with cerebellar vermis hypoplasia, ataxia and dysarthria. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22863007}.
