Summaries for BRD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary 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 Schizophrenia. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Regulation of TP53 Activity. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is BRPF3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRD1 Gene

  • Component of the MOZ/MORF complex which has a histone H3 acetyltransferase activity.

Tocris Summary for BRD1 Gene

  • 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.
