HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11732
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name DNA excision repair protein ERCC-6-like
  1. ATP-dependent helicase ERCC6-like
  2. PLK1-interacting checkpoint helicase
  3. Tumor antigen BJ-HCC-15
Gene Name ERCC6L
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function DNA helicase that acts as an essential component of the spindle assembly checkpoint. Contributes to the mitotic checkpoint by recruiting MAD2 to kinetochores and monitoring tension on centromeric chromatin. Acts as a tension sensor that associates with catenated DNA which is stretched under tension until it is resolved during anaphase.
Pathways Not Available
