GeneCards Summary for ESCO1 Gene
ESCO1 (Establishment Of Sister Chromatid Cohesion N-Acetyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ESCO1 include Roberts Syndrome and Nail Disorder, Nonsyndromic Congenital, 4. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups. An important paralog of this gene is ESCO2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ESCO1 Gene
Acetyltransferase required for the establishment of sister chromatid cohesion and couple the processes of cohesion and DNA replication to ensure that only sister chromatids become paired together. In contrast to the structural cohesins, the deposition and establishment factors are required only during S phase. Acts by mediating the acetylation of cohesin component SMC3.
