GeneID: 370


Common Name: Mi-2a Type: Gene
Chromosome: 17 (NC_000017.11) Locus: NM_001005273.3 (CHD3)
HUGO Symbol: CHD3 Full Name: chromodomain helicase DNA binding protein 3
Exons: 40 Introns: 39

This gene encodes a member of the CHD family of proteins which are characterized by the presence of chromo (chromatin organization modifier) domains and SNF2-related helicase/ATPase domains. CHD3 is a key component of NuRD, a protein complex that comprises both nucleosome remodeling and deacetylase activities. The NuRD complex has been associated with epigenetic mechanisms of transcriptional repression during development, and has been shown to play an important role in globin regulation.
