a probable nuclear protein involved in DNA excision repair. May play a part in DNA damage recognition and/or in altering chromatin structure to allow access by damage-processing enzymes. Defects in XPC are a cause of xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Molecular Function: protein binding; damaged DNA binding; bubble DNA binding; single-stranded DNA binding; loop DNA binding
Biological Process: response to drug; nucleotide-excision repair, DNA damage recognition; intra-S DNA damage checkpoint; nucleotide-excision repair; nucleotide-excision repair, DNA damage removal; DNA repair; response to UV-B
SS: The number of records in which this modification site was determined using site-specific methods. SS methods include amino acid sequencing, site-directed mutagenesis, modification site-specific antibodies, specific MS strategies, etc.
