Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CHD3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the CHD family of proteins which are characterized by the presence of chromo (chromatin organization modifier) domains and SNF2-related helicase/ATPase domains. This protein is one of the components of a histone deacetylase complex referred to as the Mi-2/NuRD complex which participates in the remodeling of chromatin by deacetylating histones. Chromatin remodeling is essential for many processes including transcription. Autoantibodies against this protein are found in a subset of patients with dermatomyositis. Three alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CHD3 Gene
CHD3 (Chromodomain Helicase DNA Binding Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHD3 include Dermatomyositis. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and RNA Polymerase I Promoter Escape. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHD5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CHD3 Gene
Component of the histone deacetylase NuRD complex which participates in the remodeling of chromatin by deacetylating histones. Required for anchoring centrosomal pericentrin in both interphase and mitosis, for spindle organization and centrosome integrity.
