Gene: Asf1a (anti-silencing function 1A histone chaperone) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Asf1a
Name: anti-silencing function 1A histone chaperone
Description: Predicted to have chromatin binding activity and histone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA repair; nucleosome assembly; and osteoblast differentiation. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin; nucleoplasm; and protein-containing complex. Orthologous to human ASF1A (anti-silencing function 1A histone chaperone); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH (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; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ASF1 anti-silencing function 1 homolog A; ASF1 anti-silencing function 1 homolog A (S. cerevisiae); histone chaperone ASF1A; LOC294408
