GeneID: 8208 Human CHAF1B

Swiss-port # Q13112 Human Chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit B

Gene Symbol CHAF1B
Gene Full Name chromatin assembly factor 1, subunit B (p60)
Background Chromatin assembly factor I (CAF-I) is required for the assembly of histone octamers onto newly-replicated DNA. CAF-I is composed of three protein subunits, p50, p60, and p150. The protein encoded by this gene corresponds to the p60 subunit and is required for chromatin assembly after replication. The encoded protein is differentially phosphorylated in a cell cycle-dependent manner. In addition, it is normally found in the nucleus except during mitosis, when it is released into the cytoplasm. This protein is a member of the WD-repeat HIR1 family and may also be involved in DNA repair. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function Complex that is thought to mediate chromatin assembly in DNA replication and DNA repair. Assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro. CAF-1 performs the first step of the nucleosome assembly process, bringing newly synthesized histones H3 and H4 to replicating DNA; histones H2A/H2B can bind to this chromatin precursor subsequent to DNA replication to complete the histone octamer.

Calculated MW 61 kDa
PTM Differentially phosphorylated during cell cycle. During mitosis the p60 subunit of inactive CAF-1 is hyperphosphorylated and displaced into the cytosol. Progressivly dephosphorylated from G1 to S and G2 phase. Phosphorylated p60 is recruited to chromatin undergoing DNA repair after UV irradiation in G1, S or G2 phases.
