Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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. Overexpression of this gene has been linked to several types of cancers. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2017]
GeneCards Summary for CHD1L Gene
CHD1L (Chromodomain Helicase DNA Binding Protein 1 Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHD1L include Cakut and Postcholecystectomy Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Nucleotide excision repair and Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHD5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary 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.
