Histone chaperone ASF1-like (IPR006818)

Short name: ASF1-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family includes the yeast and human ASF1 protein. These proteins have histone chaperone activity [PMID: 14680630]. ASF1 participates in both the replication-dependent and replication-independent pathways. The structure three-dimensional has been determined as a compact immunoglobulin-like beta sandwich fold topped by three helical linkers [PMID: 10759893].
