Summaries for CHD8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CHD8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a DNA helicase that functions as a transcription repressor by remodeling chromatin structure. It binds beta-catenin and negatively regulates Wnt signaling pathway, which plays a pivotal role in vertebrate early development and morphogenesis. Mice lacking this gene exhibit early embryonic death. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CHD8 Gene

CHD8 (Chromodomain Helicase DNA Binding Protein 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHD8 include autism 18 and charge syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Regulation of Wnt-mediated beta catenin signaling and target gene transcription. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHD3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CHD8 Gene

  • DNA helicase that acts as a chromatin remodeling factor and regulates transcription. Acts as a transcription repressor by remodeling chromatin structure and recruiting histone H1 to target genes. Suppresses p53/TP53-mediated apoptosis by recruiting histone H1 and preventing p53/TP53 transactivation activity. Acts as a negative regulator of Wnt signaling pathway by regulating beta-catenin (CTNNB1) activity. Negatively regulates CTNNB1-targeted gene expression by being recruited specifically to the promoter regions of several CTNNB1 responsive genes. Involved in both enhancer blocking and epigenetic remodeling at chromatin boundary via its interaction with CTCF. Acts as a suppressor of STAT3 activity by suppressing the LIF-induced STAT3 transcriptional activity. Also acts as a transcription activator via its interaction with ZNF143 by participating in efficient U6 RNA polymerase III transcription.
