Summaries for CHAF1A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CHAF1A Gene

  • Chromatin assembly factor I (CAF1) is a nuclear complex consisting of p50, p60 (CHAF1B; MIM 601245), and p150 (CHAF1A) subunits that assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro (Kaufman et al., 1995 [PubMed 7600578]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CHAF1A Gene

CHAF1A (Chromatin Assembly Factor 1 Subunit A) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and unfolded protein binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CHAF1A Gene

  • Core component of the CAF-1 complex, a complex thought to mediate chromatin assembly in DNA replication and DNA repair. Assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro. CAF-1 performs the first step of the nucleosome assembly process, bringing newly synthesized histones H3 and H4 to replicating DNA; histones H2A/H2B can bind to this chromatin precursor subsequent to DNA replication to complete the histone octamer. CHAF1A binds to histones H3 and H4. It may play a role in heterochromatin maintenance in proliferating cells by bringing newly synthesized cbx proteins to heterochromatic DNA replication foci (By similarity).

    Molecular mass:
    106926 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Part of the CAF-1 complex that contains RBBP4, CHAF1B and CHAF1A. CHAF1A binds directly to CHAF1B. Only minor amounts of RBBP4 are complexed with CHAF1A and CHAF1B in G1 phase. CHAF1A binds directly to PCNA and to CBX1. Binds MBD1. Interacts directly with CBX5 via the PxVxL motif. During DNA replication, it forms a S phase-specific complex that facilitates DNA methylation and histone H3 Lys-9 methylation during replication-coupled chromatin assembly and is at least composed of the CHAF1A, MBD1 and SETDB1. Interacts with CBX5.
