FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene functions together with DNA ligase IV and the DNA-dependent protein kinase in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks. This protein plays a role in both non-homologous end joining and the completion of V(D)J recombination. Mutations in this gene can cause short stature, microcephaly, and endocrine dysfunction (SSMED). Alternative splicing generates several transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants have massive neuronal apoptosis, growth retardation, hypoplastic thymus and die by embryonic day 17.5. Lethality is rescued by Trp53 deficiency, but double knockout mice die from pro-B-cell lymphomas with Myc-Igh translocations. [provided by MGI curators]
