SWI/SNF related, matrix associated, actin dependent regulator of chromatin, subfamily a, member 4

BRG1, SNF2, BRM, SWI2, MLC1
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the SWI/SNF family of proteins and is similar to the brahma protein of Drosophila. Members of this family have helicase and ATPase activities and are thought to regulate transcription of certain genes by altering the chromatin structure around those genes. The encoded protein is part of the large ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex SNF/SWI, which is required for transcriptional activation of genes normally repressed by chromatin. In addition, this protein can bind BRCA1, as well as regulate the expression of the tumorigenic protein CD44. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
