Previous GeneCards Identifiers for BRD1 Gene
This gene encodes a bromodomain-containing protein that localizes to the nucleus and can interact with DNA and histone tails. The encoded protein is a component of the MOZ/MORF acetyltransferase complex and can stimulate acetylation of histones H3 and H4, thereby potentially playing a role in gene activation. Variation in this gene is associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in some study populations. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2017]
GeneCards Summary for BRD1 Gene
BRD1 (Bromodomain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BRD1 include Tuberculum Sellae Meningioma and Sella Turcica Neoplasm. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Pathways Affected in Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is BRPF3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for BRD1 Gene
Scaffold subunit of various histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complexes, such as the MOZ/MORF and HBO1 complexes, that acts as a regulator of hematopoiesis (PubMed:16387653, PubMed:21753189, PubMed:21880731). Plays a key role in HBO1 complex by directing KAT7/HBO1 specificity towards histone H3 'Lys-14' acetylation (H3K14ac), thereby promoting erythroid differentiation (PubMed:21753189).
Bromodomains (BRDs) are epigenetic reader domains that selectively recognize acetylated lysine residues on the tails of histone proteins, and are the only known protein modules that can target acetylated lysine residues.
