Activating transcription factor 7 interacting protein
hAM, MCAF1, MBD1-containing chromatin-associated factor 1, MBD1-containing chromatin-associated factor
ATF7IP is a multifunctional nuclear protein that associates with heterochromatin. It can act as a transcriptional coactivator or corepressor depending upon its binding partners (summary by Liu et al., 2009 [PubMed 19106100]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2010] (from
Chang et al., Taipei, Taiwan. In J Gen Virol, Aug 2015
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) expresses two immediate-early proteins, Rta and Zta, which are key transcription factors that can form a complex with MCAF1 at Zta-responsive elements (ZREs) to synergistically activate several viral lytic genes.
PURPOSE: To compare human urothelial and smooth muscle cells attachment and proliferation using three different matrices; poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), PLGA/collagen and human amniotic membrane (hAM).

One of its regulators is the 64-residue C-terminal Transcriptional Repressor Domain (the TRD) of MBD1, which recruits several repressor proteins such as MCAF1, HDAC3 and MPG that are essential for the gene silencing.
Plath et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Epigenetics Chromatin, 2013
Here, we studied ATF7IP (MCAF1), a protein previously characterized to coordinate DNA methylation and histone H3K9 methylation through interactions with the methyl-DNA binding protein MBD1 and the histone H3K9 methyltransferase SETDB1, as a candidate maintenance factor of the Xi.
Nakao et al., Kumamoto, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 2009
Two evolutionarily conserved domains of MCAF1 directly interact with Sp1 and the general transcriptional apparatus. Selective depletion of MCAF1 or Sp1 down-regulates TERT and TERC genes in cultured cells, which results in decreased telomerase activity.
Nakao et al., Kumamoto, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 2005
These data suggest that MBD1.MCAF1.SETDB1 complex facilitates the formation of heterochromatic domains, emphasizing the role of MCAF/AM family proteins in epigenetic control, and describe a new family member, MCAF2.
