  • associated with the endoplasmic reticulum
  • localized throughout the nucleoplasm of interphase cells
  • basic FUNCTION
  • template activating factor I, beta isoform (DNA replication factor)
  • potent and specific inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (PPP2AC)
  • involved in DNA replication, in nuclear organization and biogenesis
  • histone chaperone involved in cell-cycle control and chromatin remodeling
  • regulates the CREBBP-mediated transcription
  • required for transcription of chromatin templates by RNA polymerase Pol II
  • with PARP1, may function by physically removing chromatin-bound DEK
  • negative regulator of neuronal development
  • plays a role in MCPH1-mediated chromosome condensation/decondensation
  • important regulator of chromosome condensation/decondensation and disruption of the MCPH1-SET interaction might be important for the pathogenesis of primary microcephaly
  • potent inhibitor of the protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) tumor suppressor
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, replication
    nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    a component
    DNA binds chromatin, dissociating DEK and PARP1 to allow transcription in the absence of NAD+
    small molecule
  • binding specifically to mitotic cyclin B, MMG2, P35(NCK5A), P39(NCK5AI)
  • binding to TATA-box binding protein (TBP)
  • interacts directly with the acetyltransferase CREB-binding protein (CBP) and enhances the transactivation potential of the transcription coactivator
  • interacting wth DEK and PARP1 (constitute a network governing access to chromatin by the transcription machinery)
  • MCPH1-associated protein and an important negative regulator of chromosome condensation
  • PRKD2 is involved in the regulation of PP2A activity in activated T cells through phosphorylation of Ser171 of SET
  • cell & other
