Gene: ATRX (ATRX chromatin remodeler) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ATRX
Name: ATRX chromatin remodeler
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA translocase activity; chromo shadow domain binding activity; and methylated histone binding activity. Involved in chromatin organization; positive regulation of telomeric RNA transcription from RNA pol II promoter; and regulation of chromosome organization. Localizes to nuclear body and nuclear subtelomeric heterochromatin. Implicated in alpha thalassemia-X-linked intellectual disability syndrome and malignant glioma. Biomarker of astrocytoma; glioblastoma multiforme; melanoma; and sarcoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
