XPA

xeroderma pigmentosum, complementation group A

On chromosome: 9q22.3
Known also as: XP1; XPAC;


NCBI Gene ID: 7507
NCBI Ensembl Id: ENSG00000136936
MIM Id: (from NCBI OMIM database) 611153
Species: Homo sapiens

This gene encodes a zinc finger protein involved in DNA excision repair. The encoded protein is part of the NER (nucleotide excision repair) complext which is responsible for repair of UV radiation-induced photoproducts and DNA adducts induced by chemical carcinogens. Mutations in this gene are associated with xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group A. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]
