Human Gene RSF1 (uc001oyn.3) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens remodeling and spacing factor 1 (RSF1), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_016578): This gene encodes a nuclear protein that interacts with hepatitis B virus X protein (HBX) and facilitates transcription of hepatitis B virus genes by the HBX transcription activator, suggesting a role for this interaction in the virus life cycle. This protein also interacts with SNF2H protein to form the RSF chromatin-remodeling complex, where the SNF2H subunit functions as the nucleosome-dependent ATPase, and this protein as the histone chaperone.

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Remodeling and spacing factor 1; Short=Rsf-1; AltName: Full=HBV pX-associated protein 8; AltName: Full=Hepatitis B virus X-associated protein; AltName: Full=p325 subunit of RSF chromatin-remodeling complex;
FUNCTION: Required for assembly of regular nucleosome arrays by the RSF chromatin-remodeling complex. Facilitates transcription of hepatitis B virus (HBV) genes by the pX transcription activator. In case of infection by HBV, together with pX, it represses TNF- alpha induced NF-kappa-B transcription activation. Represses transcription when artificially recruited to chromatin by fusion to a heterogeneous DNA binding domain.
SUBUNIT: Interacts with SMARCA5/SNF2H to form the RSF complex. Also binds the HBV pX/HBx protein, which is required to activate transcription of the viral genome.
INTERACTION: O60264:SMARCA5; NbExp=5; IntAct=EBI-926768, EBI-352588;
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Ubiquitously expressed.
PTM: Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 DDT domain.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 PHD-type zinc finger.
SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAG43114.1; Type=Frameshift; Positions=549; Sequence=AAH46124.2; Type=Miscellaneous discrepancy; Note=Contaminating sequence. Potential poly-A sequence; Sequence=AAK57515.1; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=BAA91591.1; Type=Erroneous initiation;

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q96T23
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
