26945061 These data suggest that CAF-1- and ASF1A-H3-H4-dependent deposition of the histone (H3-H4)2 tetramers is compatible with MMR and protects the discontinuous daughter strand from unnecessary degradation by MMR machinery.

24700029 The ATR checkpoint pathway causes a histone chaperone normally associated with the replication fork, ASF1a, to degrade through a CRL1(betaTRCP)-dependent ubiquitination/proteasome pathway, leading to the localized dechromatinization and gene repression.

16980972 The N- and C-terminal regions of ASF1a and ASF1b determine the different affinities of these two proteins for HIRA, by contacting regions outside the HIRA B domain. CAF-1 p60 also uses B domain-like motifs for binding to ASF1a.
15840725 Evidence of binding between a histone and one of its chaperones and genetic data suggesting that this interaction is important in both the DNA damage response and transcriptional silencing.
15664198 Data suggest that Asf1 provides cells with a buffering system for histone excess generated in response to stalled replication and explains how cells maintain an "active" histone pool available during recovery from replication stresses.

11897662 model is proposed in which the synergism between hAsf1 and CAF-1 for nucleosome formation during DNA repair is achieved through a transient physical interaction allowing histone delivery from Asf1 to CAF-1
