Gene: POLM (DNA polymerase mu) Homo sapiens
Symbol: POLM
Name: DNA polymerase mu
Description: Predicted to have DNA-directed DNA polymerase activity. Predicted to be involved in base-excision repair and double-strand break repair via nonhomologous end joining. Predicted to localize to the nucleus; PARTICIPATES IN non-homologous end joining pathway of double-strand break repair; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2-methylcholine; 3-[3-(tert-butylsulfanyl)-1-(4-chlorobenzyl)-5-(propan-2-yl)-1H-indol-2-yl]-2,2-dimethylpropanoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: DNA-directed DNA/RNA polymerase mu; FLJ35482; Pol iota; Pol Mu; polymerase (DNA directed), mu; polymerase (DNA) mu; polymerase (DNA-directed), mu; Tdt-N; terminal transferase
