motifs/domains
  • a LEM-domain, which binds a conserved chromatin protein named BANF1
  • C-terminally located classical monopartite nuclear localization signal and a centrally located CRM1-dependent nuclear export signal that mediate nucleo-cytoplasmic shuttling of ANKLE1
  • C-terminal GIY-YIG motif that confers endonuclease activity
  • HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to murine Ankrd41

    text
  • most LEM-domain proteins are found at the nuclear membrane, but some are nucleoplasmic
  • is not an integral protein of the inner nuclear membrane but shuttles between the nucleus and the cytoplasm, and is predominant in the cytoplasm
  • basic FUNCTION
  • enriched in the nucleoplasm induces DNA cleavage and DNA damage response
  • is an unusual LEM protein with a GIY-YIG-type endonuclease activity in higher eukaryotes
  • nuclease likely involved in DNA damage repair pathways

  • lack of Ankle1 does neither affect mouse hematopoiesis nor DNA damage repair in mouse embryonic fibroblasts, indicating a redundant or non-essential function of ANKLE1 in mouse
