Protein Information
Name XRCC6
Synonyms G22P1
Function Single-stranded DNA-dependent ATP-dependent helicase. Has a role in chromosome translocation. The DNA helicase II complex binds preferentially to fork-like ends of double-stranded DNA in a cell cycle-dependent manner. It works in the 3'-5' direction. Binding to DNA may be mediated by XRCC6. Involved in DNA non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) required for double-strand break repair and V(D)J recombination. The XRCC5/6 dimer acts as regulatory subunit of the DNA-dependent protein kinase complex DNA-PK by increasing the affinity of the catalytic subunit PRKDC to DNA by 100-fold. The XRCC5/6 dimer is probably involved in stabilizing broken DNA ends and bringing them together. The assembly of the DNA-PK complex to DNA ends is required for the NHEJ ligation step. Required for osteocalcin gene expression. Probably also acts as a 5'-deoxyribose-5-phosphate lyase (5'-dRP lyase), by catalyzing the beta-elimination of the 5' deoxyribose- 5-phosphate at an abasic site near double-strand breaks. 5'-dRP lyase activity allows to 'clean' the termini of abasic sites, a class of nucleotide damage commonly associated with strand breaks, before such broken ends can be joined. The XRCC5/6 dimer together with APEX1 acts as a negative regulator of transcription.

ATP-dependent DNA helicase 2 subunit 1 (Ku70) is a single stranded DNA-dependent helicase originally recognized by the sera of patients with autoimmune diseases (1, 2). It plays a key role in multiple nuclear processes such as DNA repair, chromosome maintenance, transcription regulation, and V(D)J recombination (3). Ku70 forms a heterodimer with Ku80 and contributes to genomic integrity through its ability to bind DNA double-strand breaks and facilitate repair by the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) pathway (4). The dimer associates in a DNA-dependent manner with PRKDC to form the DNA-dependent protein kinase complex, DNA-PK (1). Together, the Ku70/Ku80 heterodimer and DNA-PKcs are required for V(D)J recombination and DNA double-strand break repair and may also play a role in transcription regulation (5). In addition, the dimer associates with NARG1 to bind to the osteocalcin promoter and activate osteocalcin expression (1).
