MHF2/YDL160C-A Summary Help

Standard Name MHF2 1, 2
Systematic Name YDL160C-A
Feature Type ORF, Verified
Description Component of the heterotetrameric MHF histone-fold complex; in humans the MMF complex interacts with both DNA and Mph1p ortholog FANCM to stabilize and remodel blocked replication forks and repair damaged DNA; mhf2 srs2 double mutants are MMS hypersensitive; orthologous to human centromere constitutive-associated network (CCAN) subunit CENP-X, also known as MHF2 (1, 2, 3)
Name Description Mph1-associated Histone-Fold protein 1
