excision repair cross-complementing rodent repair deficiency, complementation group 5

On chromosome: 13q33
Known also as: XPG; UVDR; XPGC; COFS3; ERCM2;

NCBI Gene ID: 2073
NCBI Ensembl Id: ENSG00000134899
MIM Id: (from NCBI OMIM database) 133530
Species: Homo sapiens

Excision repair cross-complementing rodent repair deficiency, complementation group 5 (xeroderma pigmentosum, complementation group G) is involved in excision repair of UV-induced DNA damage. Mutations cause Cockayne syndrome, which is characterized by severe growth defects, mental retardation, and cachexia. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described, but the biological validity of all variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq]
