  • colocalizes with the DNA repair protein BRCA2
  • not in the Fanconi nuclear ‘core complex’
  • monoubiquitination of FANCD2 is unaffected by defects in the gene coding for FANCN
  • new Fanconi anemia complementation group, FA-N
  • sequence alterations in FANCN cause reduced detection of BRCA2 and sensitivity to crosslinking agents, which is typical for Fanconi patients.
  • size of protein-1186 amino acids or 130 kDa
  • number of nucs-3,552
  • antibody against the N terminus and central region (amino acids 601-880)
  • seq online in other species?


  • 8 patients known to have FANCN mutations
  • bialleic
  • premature stop codon very close to the C-terminus causing non-functioning protein truncations
  • critical tyrosine residue at C-terminus-Y1183X
