    basic FUNCTION
  • modulating HSF2 activation in testis
  • HSF2BP may play a pivotal role in regulating BNC1 transcriptional activity and subcellular localization during spermatogenesis
  • directly binds to BRCA2 and regulates its association to meiotic DSBs
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, differentiation

    protein
  • binding to HSF2 (by its trimerization domain), HSF1
  • is a testis-specific binding protein of HSF2, and is a binding partner of BNC1
  • HSF2BP could interact with and inhibit BNC1 transcriptional activity without affecting its expression level
  • BRCA2-HSF2BP interaction is highly evolutionarily conserved and maps to armadillo repeats in HSF2BP and a 68-amino acid region between the BRC repeats and the DNA binding domain of human BRCA2
  • BRME1 functions as a stabilizer of HSF2BP by binding to an alpha-helical N-terminus of HSF2BP and preventing HSF2BP self-association
  • BRME1 modulates localization of recombinases to meiotic double-strand break (DSB)sites through the interaction with the BRCA2/HSF2BP complex during meiotic recombination
  • is a novel recombination factor and probably mediates DMC1/RAD51 recruitment to ssDNA or their stability on chromosomes through physical interaction with HSF2BP
