a structural maintenance of chromosomes (SMC) protein involved in postreplication repair of UV-damaged DNA. Has ssDNA binding activity. Interacts with Rad6 through a conserved ring-finger motif. Rad6 is an ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme required for post-replication repair of damaged DNA. Postreplication repair functions in gap-filling of a daughter strand on replication of damaged DNA. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
