The gene WSTF is deleted in the autosomal dominant hereditary disorder Williams-Beuren syndrome. This disorder is caused by a 1.3 megabase deletion in human chromosome 7, encompassing at least 17 genes. The WSTF protein contains a bromodomain, found predominantly in chromatin-associated proteins. Reported association of WSTF with chromatin remodeling factors and functional data support a role for WSTF during chromatin remodeling. Here, we report the cloning and developmental expression pattern… CONTINUE READING
