Relevance to Autism

Rare mutations in the XPC gene have been identified with autism (Khan et al., 1998). In addition, XPC mutations have been found to be identified with xeroderma pigmentosum (syndromic with autism), where a subpopulation of individuals with XP develop autism.

Molecular Function

This gene encodes a component of the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway. It acts as a damage-sensing and DNA-binding factor component of the XPC complex.
