Description the gene spans 15 kb and contains 10 exons;1611 bp open reading frame


Description 536 amino acids, 60 kDa; contains two potential nuclear localization signals
Function part of the FA complex with FANCA, FANCC, FANCF, and FANCG. ; this complex is only found in the nucleus.
  • FANCA and FANCG form a complex in the cytoplasm, through a N-term FANCA (involving the nuclear localization signal) - FANCG interaction; FANCC join the complex; phosphorylation of FANCA would induce its translocation into the nucleus.This FA complex translocates into the nucleus, where FANCE and FANCF are present; FANCE and FANCF join the complex. The FA complex subsequently interacts with FANCD2 by monoubiquitination of FANCD2 during S phase or following DNA damage. Activated (ubiquinated ) FANCD2, downstream in the FA pathway, will then interact with other proteins involved in DNA repair, possibly BRCA1; after DNA repair, FANCD2 return to the non-ubiquinated form.
  • Homology no known homology

    Implicated in

    Entity Fanconi anaemia (FA); FANCE is implicated in the FA complementation group E; it represents about 2% of FA cases
    Disease Fanconi anaemia is a chromosome instability syndrome/cancer prone disease (at risk of leukaemia)
    Prognosis Fanconi anaemia's prognosis is poor; mean survival is 20 years (depending on mutation, treatment): patients die of bone marrow failure (infections, haemorrhages), leukaemia, or androgen therapy related liver tumours
  • It has recently been shown that significant phenotypic differences were found between the various complementation groups. Patients from the rare groups FA-D, FA-E, and FA-F had somatic abnormalities more frequently.
  • Cytogenetics spontaneous,chromatid/chromosome breaks; increased rate of breaks compared to control, when induced by breaking agent
