Barrier to autointegration factor 1

BAF, barrier-to-autointegration factor
The protein encoded by this gene was first identified by its ability to protect retroviruses from intramolecular integration and therefore promote intermolecular integration into the host cell genome. The protein forms a homodimer which localizes to both the nucleus and cytoplasm and is specifically associated with chromosomes during mitosis. This protein binds to double stranded DNA in a non-specific manner and also binds to LEM-domain containing proteins of the nuclear envelope. This protein is thought to facilitate nuclear reassembly by binding with both DNA and inner nuclear membrane proteins and thereby recruit chromatin to the nuclear periphery. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009] (from NCBI)

Papers on BAF
Sidt2 is involved in the NAADP-mediated release of calcium from insulin secretory granules.
Zhang et al., Shanghai, China. In J Mol Endocrinol, Feb 2016
Extraordinarily, pretreatment with bafilomycin A1(Baf-A1) led to a comparable [Ca2+]i increase pattern between these two groups, suggesting that calcium traffic from the intracellular acidic compartment is defective in Sidt2-/- β-cells.

Simple Separation of Functionally Distinct Populations of Lamin-Binding Proteins.
Wilson et al., Baltimore, United States. In Methods Enzymol, Dec 2015
This protocol was developed for emerin, an inner nuclear membrane protein that binds lamins and barrier-to-autointegration factor (BANF1) as a component of nuclear lamina structure, and has diverse roles in nuclear assembly, signaling, and gene regulation.

Zinn-Justin et al., Paris, France. In Methods Enzymol, Dec 2015
The LEM domain binds to BAF (barrier-to-autointegration factor; BANF1), which interacts with DNA and tethers chromatin to the nuclear envelope.
Selective targeting of the BRG/PB1 bromodomains impairs embryonic and trophoblast stem cell maintenance.
Müller et al., Oxford, United Kingdom. In Sci Adv, Nov 2015
BAF complexes contain an ATP (adenosine 5'-triphosphate)-driven remodeling enzyme (either BRG1 or BRM) and multiple protein interaction domains including bromodomains, an evolutionary conserved acetyl lysine-dependent protein interaction motif that recruits transcriptional regulators to acetylated chromatin.

Beato et al., Spain. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Nov 2015
Similarly, during hormone-dependent gene repression a dedicated enzymatic mechanism controls H1 deposition at promoters by a complex containing HP1γ, LSD1 and BRG1, the ATPase of the BAF complex.
SMARCA4 inactivation defines a group of undifferentiated thoracic malignancies transcriptionally related to BAF-deficient sarcomas.
Tirode et al., Lyon, France. In Nat Genet, Oct 2015
While investigating cohorts of unclassified sarcomas by RNA sequencing, we identified 19 cases with inactivation of SMARCA4, which encodes an ATPase subunit of BAF chromatin-remodeling complexes.
