Official Full Name
excision repair cross-complementation group 4
The protein encoded by this gene forms a complex with ERCC1 and is involved in the 5 incision made during nucleotide excision repair. This complex is a structure specific DNA repair endonuclease that interacts with EME1. Defects in this gene are a cause of xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group F (XP-F), or xeroderma pigmentosum VI (XP6).
