FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene belongs to the SMC3 subfamily of SMC proteins. The encoded protein occurs in certain cell types as either an intracellular, nuclear protein or a secreted protein. The nuclear form, known as structural maintenance of chromosomes 3, is a component of the multimeric cohesin complex that holds together sister chromatids during mitosis, enabling proper chromosome segregation. Post-translational modification of the encoded protein by the addition of chondroitin sulfate chains gives rise to the secreted proteoglycan bamacan, an abundant basement membrane protein.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit complete embryonic lethality. Mice heterozygous for this allele exhibit partial postnatal lethality, decreased body weight, abnormal craniofacial morphology, and increased T cell number. [provided by MGI curators]
