chromatin-binding protein BDF1
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
BET family transcriptional regulator; associates with TFIID, and is involved in transcription initiation at TATA-containing promoters; essential for meiosis and expression of meiosis-specific genes; binds acetylated histone H4 at double-strand break (DSB) sites, and promotes end resection, loading of RPA and Rad51p and ds break repair by homologous recombination; contains two bromodomains that correspond to the C-terminal region of mammalian TAF1; partially redundant with paralog Bdf2p 2 3 4 5
