|Function||Component of the MRN complex, which plays a central role in double-strand break (DSB) repair, DNA recombination, maintenance of telomere integrity and meiosis. The complex possesses single-strand endonuclease activity and double-strand- specific 3'-5' exonuclease activity, which are provided by MRE11A. RAD50 may be required to bind DNA ends and hold them in close proximity. This could facilitate searches for short or long regions of sequence homology in the recombining DNA templates, and may also stimulate the activity of DNA ligases and/or restrict the nuclease activity of MRE11A to prevent nucleolytic degradation past a given point (PubMed:9651580, PubMed:9590181, PubMed:9705271, PubMed:11741547). The complex may also be required for DNA damage signaling via activation of the ATM kinase (PubMed:15064416). In telomeres the MRN complex may modulate t- loop formation (PubMed:10888888).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome, telomere. Note=Localizes to discrete nuclear foci after treatment with genotoxic agents|

MRE11 Antibody: MRE11 is involved in the repair of DNA double strand breaks as part of a complex that includes the Rad50 and NBS1 protein and is thought to act in the same pathway as the A-T mutated (ATM) protein. By itself, the protein has 3' to 5' exonuclease activity and endonuclease activity. The protein forms a complex with the RAD50 homolog; this complex is required for non-homologous joining of DNA ends and possesses increased single-stranded DNA endonuclease and 3' to 5' exonuclease activities. In conjunction with a DNA ligase, this protein promotes the joining of noncomplementary ends in vitro using short homologies near the ends of the DNA fragments. Mutations in this protein result in a novel ataxia telangiectasia-like disorder (ATLD). Unlike the ATM protein, MRE11 is necessary proper mammalian development.
