This gene encodes a nuclear phosphoprotein that plays a role in maintaining genomic stability and it also acts as a tumor suppressor. The encoded protein combines with other tumor suppressors DNA damage sensors and signal transducers to form a large multi-subunit protein complex known as the BRCA1-associated genome surveillance complex (BASC). This gene product associates with RNA polymerase II and through the C-terminal domain also interacts with histone deacetylase complexes. This protein thus plays a role in transcription DNA repair of double-stranded breaks and recombination. Mutations in this gene are responsible for approximately 40% of inherited breast cancers and more than 80% of inherited breast and ovarian cancers. Alternative splicing plays a role in modulating the subcellular localization and physiological function of this gene. Many alternatively spliced transcript variants some of which are disease-associated mutations have been described for this gene but the full-length natures of only some of these variants has been described. A related pseudogene which is also located on chromosome 17 has been identified. [provided by RefSeq May 2009]
