Gene: Chaf1a (chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chaf1a
Name: chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit A
Description: Predicted to have chromo shadow domain binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA replication-dependent nucleosome assembly. Predicted to localize to the CAF-1 complex and nuclear chromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colon cancer; malignant glioma; neuroblastoma; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Orthologous to human CHAF1A (chromatin assembly factor 1 subunit A); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
