  • SNF5/SMARCB1/INI1 (IPR006939)
    • Chromatin-remodeling complex component Sfh1/SNF5 (IPR017393)


This entry includes Sfh1 from fungi and SNF5 from animals. They are components of chromatin-remodeling complex. In animals, SNF5 is a component of the BAF (hSWI/SNF) complex, which is an ATP-dependent nucleosome-remodelling complex that plays important roles in cell proliferation and differentiation [PMID: 16314535]. In budding yeasts, Sfh1 is a component of the chromatin structure-remodeling complex (RSC), which is involved in transcription regulation and nucleosome positioning [PMID: 9154831].
