Gene RIF (16)

24598821 Data indicate Tousled-like kinases (TLK1) phosphorylation has an impact on cell cycle proteins Asf1a and Asf1b function.
24413054 Co-depletion of the histone chaperones ASF1a and ASF1b in human cells induces all hallmarks of alternative lengthening of telomeres in both primary and cancer cells.
23178455 study of the interaction of the histone H3-H4 complex with the RbAp48 and their exchange with a second histone chaperone, anti-silencing function protein 1 (ASF1); exchange of histones H3-H4 between these two histone chaperones has a central role in the assembly of new nucleosomes
23100276 Data indicate that miR-214 down-regulated the expression of PSMD10 (gankyrin) and ASF1B, and gankyrin inhibition induced an increase of P53 mRNA levels.
21179005 Asf1b, the necessary Asf1 isoform for proliferation, is predictive of outcome in breast cancer.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20227376 Identify marks on histones H3-H4 bound to Asf1 and changes induced upon replication stress.
20133788 Data show that Asf1b localizes with HCF-1 in viral replication foci and depletion of Asf1b results in significantly reduced viral DNA accumulation.
20016786 ASF1 cellular levels are tightly controlled by distinct pathways and provide a molecular mechanism for post-translational regulation of dASF1 and hASF1a by TLK kinases.
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
