Description The gene spans 107 kb; on direct strand
Transcription at least 11 transcripts; one transcript of 4kb and 21 exons encodes a protein of 1323 amino acids and 141 kDa.


Localisation nucleus
Function binds BRCA2 at its N-term transactivation domain; may repress the transcritional activity of BRCA2

Implicated in

Entity C11ORF30/EMSY was found amplified in 7 and 17 % of cases respectively of sporadic breast cancers and high grade ovarian cancers, but very rarely in other cancers tested.
Note 11q13 is frequently amplified in sporadic breast cancers; CCND1, in particular, is amplified in about 20% of cases. However, C11ORF30/EMSY was found amplified in cases with normal CCND1: they are independant factors.
Prognosis C11ORF30/EMSY amplification is associated with a worse prognosis in node-negative breast cancers, and has no prgnosis implication in node-positive breast cancers.


EMSY links the BRCA2 pathway to sporadic breast and ovarian cancer.
