UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MCRS1 Gene
Modulates the transcription repressor activity of DAXX by recruiting it to the nucleolus (PubMed:11948183). As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues (PubMed:20018852). Putative regulatory component of the chromatin remodeling INO80 complex which is involved in transcriptional regulation, DNA replication and probably DNA repair. May also be an inhibitor of TERT telomerase activity (PubMed:15044100). Binds to G-quadruplex structures in mRNA (PubMed:16571602). Binds to RNA homopolymer poly(G) and poly(U) (PubMed:16571602).
