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.
26336826 Data show that the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 RAD6A/B-MDM2 ubiquitin ligase machinery regulates anti-silencing function 1A protein (ASF1A) degradation.
26186914 quaternary complex of histone H3-H4 heterodimer with chaperone ASF1 and the replicative helicase subunit MCM2
25618846 Thermodynamic analysis of the quaternary complex together with structural modeling support that ASF1 and MCM2 could form a chaperoning module for histones H3 and H4 protecting them from promiscuous interactions.
25035411 findings show that ASF1A, a histone-remodeling chaperone specifically enriched in the metaphase II oocyte, is necessary for reprogramming of adult dermal fibroblasts into undifferentiated induced pluripotent stem cell
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.
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.
22951827 Asf1a plays a role in regulating IE genes by assembling chromatin onto histone-free viral DNA by 3 h postinfection with herpes simplex virus 1
22407294 The authors propose that Codanin-1 acts as a negative regulator of Asf1 function in chromatin assembly.
