Gene: CHAF1B (chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHAF1B
Name: chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit B
Description: Predicted to have histone binding activity. Involved in DNA replication-dependent nucleosome assembly. Localizes to the CAF-1 complex; nuclear chromatin; and nucleoplasm. Colocalizes with the cytosol. Biomarker of glioblastoma multiforme; malignant glioma; oral squamous cell carcinoma; prostate cancer; and skin melanoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
