|Function||3'-5' DNA helicase and substrate-recognition component of the SCF(FBXO18) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that plays a key role in response to stalled/damaged replication forks (PubMed:11956208, PubMed:23393192). Involved in genome maintenance by acting as an anti-recombinogenic helicase and preventing extensive strand exchange during homologous recombination: promotes RAD51 filament dissolution from stalled forks, thereby inhibiting homologous recombination and preventing excessive recombination (PubMed:17724085, PubMed:19736316). Also promotes cell death and DNA double-strand breakage in response to replication stress: together with MUS81, promotes the endonucleolytic DNA cleavage following prolonged replication stress via its helicase activity, possibly to eliminate cells with excessive replication stress (PubMed:23319600, PubMed:23361013). Plays a major role in remodeling of stalled DNA forks by catalyzing fork regression, in which the fork reverses and the two nascent DNA strands anneal (PubMed:25772361). In addition to the helicase activity, also acts as the substrate-recognition component of the SCF(FBXO18) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex, a complex that mediates ubiquitination of RAD51, leading to regulate RAD51 subcellular location (PubMed:25585578).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Accumulates at sites of DNA damage or replication stress (PubMed:19736316, PubMed:23677613) PCNA is required for localization to DNA damage sites (PubMed:23677613). Localizes to the nucleoplasm in absence of DNA damage (PubMed:23677613).|

This gene encodes a member of the F-box protein family,members of which are characterized by an approximately 40 aminoacid motif, the F-box. The F-box proteins constitute one of thefour subunits of ubiquitin protein ligase complex called SCFs(SKP1-cullin-F-box), which function in phosphorylation-dependentubiquitination. The F-box proteins are divided into three classes:Fbws containing WD-40 domains, Fbls containing leucine-richrepeats, and Fbxs containing either different protein-proteininteraction modules or no recognizable motifs. The protein encodedby this gene belongs to the Fbx class. It contains an F-box motifand seven conserved helicase motifs, and has both DNA-dependentATPase and DNA unwinding activities. Alternatively splicedtranscript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identifiedfor this gene.
