      Background InformationChromatin assembly factor (CAF), is a heterotrimeric complex that belongs to the histone chaperone family. It is found in yeast, animals and plants, and facilitates the assembly of chromatin during DNA replication and repair. There are three CAF subunits: p48, p60, and p150. The p60 subunit interacts with the histone chaperone anti-silencing factor 1. Mutations in CAF p60 resulted in apoptosis in dividing human cells.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryChromatin 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.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: Core component of the CAF-1 complex, a complex 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. CHAF1A binds to histones H3 and H4. It may play a role in heterochromatin maintenance in proliferating cells by bringing newly synthesized cbx proteins to heterochromatic DNA replication foci By similarity. The CCR4-NOT complex functions as general transcription regulation complex. Also involved in vitamin D-coupled transcription regulation via its association with the WINAC complex, a chromatin-remodeling complex recruited by vitamin D receptor (VDR), which is required for the ligand-bound VDR-mediated transrepression of the CYP27B1 gene.

      SUBUNIT STRUCTURE: Homodimer. Part of the CAF-1 complex that contains RBBP4, CHAF1B and CHAF1A. CHAF1A binds directly to CHAF1B. Only minor amounts of RBBP4 are complexed with CHAF1A and CHAF1B in G1 phase. Part of the CCR4-NOT core complex that contains CHAF1A, CHAF1B, CNOT1, CNOT2, CNOT3, CNOT4, CNOT6 and CNOT8. CHAF1A binds directly to PCNA and to CBX1. Binds MBD1. Interacts directly with CBX5 via the PxVxL motif. During DNA replication, it forms a S phase-specific complex that facilitates DNA methylation and histone H3 'Lys-9' methylation during replication-coupled chromatin assembly and is at least composed of the CHAF1A, MBD1 and SETDB1. Component of the WINAC complex, at least composed of SMARCA2, SMARCA4, SMARCB1, SMARCC1, SMARCC2, SMARCD1, SMARCE1, ACTL6A, BAZ1B/WSTF, ARID1A, SUPT16H, CHAF1A and TOP2B.

      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. Note: DNA replication foci.

      DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Active complex is found in G1, S and G2 phases.

      DOMAIN: Contains one Pro-Xaa-Val-Xaa-Leu (PxVxL) motif, which is required for interaction with chromoshadow domains. This motif requires additional residues -7, -6, +4 and +5 of the central Val which contact the chromoshadow domain.

      PTM: Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.

      SEQUENCE SIMILARITIES: Belongs to the CHAF1A family.
