Diverse functions of ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes in development and cancer.

Mammalian SWI/SNF like Brg1/Brm associated factors (BAF) chromatin-remodeling complexes are able to use energy derived from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) hydrolysis to change chromatin structures and regulate nuclear processes such as transcription. BAF complexes contain multiple subunits and the diverse subunit compositions provide functional specificities… CONTINUE READING
