External Ids for CHD1L Gene
This gene encodes a DNA helicase protein involved in DNA repair. The protein converts ATP to add poly(ADP-ribose) as it regulates chromatin relaxation following DNA damage. Several alternatively spliced transcripts variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
GeneCards Summary for CHD1L Gene
CHD1L (Chromodomain Helicase DNA Binding Protein 1-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and ATP-dependent DNA helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SMARCA1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CHD1L Gene
DNA helicase which plays a role in chromatin-remodeling following DNA damage. Targeted to sites of DNA damage through interaction with poly(ADP-ribose) and functions to regulate chromatin during DNA repair. Able to catalyze nucleosome sliding in an ATP-dependent manner. Helicase activity is strongly stimulated upon poly(ADP-ribose)-binding.
