|Function||Its association with the histone methyltransferase MLL2/MLL3 complex is suggesting a role in epigenetic transcriptional activation. However, in association with PAXIP1/PTIP is proposed to function at least in part independently of the MLL2/MLL3 complex. Proposed to be recruited by PAXIP1 to sites of DNA damage where the PAGR1:PAXIP1 complex is required for cell survival in response to DNA damage independently of the MLL2/MLL3 complex (PubMed:19124460). However, its function in DNA damage has been questioned (By similarity). During immunoglobulin class switching in activated B-cells is involved in transcription regulation of downstream switch regions at the immunoglobulin heavy-chain (Igh) locus independently of the MLL2/MLL3 complex (By similarity). Involved in both estrogen receptor-regulated gene transcription and estrogen-stimulated G1/S cell-cycle transition (PubMed:19039327). Acts as transcriptional cofactor for nuclear hormone receptors. Inhibits the induction properties of several steroid receptors such as NR3C1, AR and PPARG; the mechanism of inhibition appears to be gene-dependent (PubMed:23161582).|

GAS Antibody: Steroid receptor co-activators (SRCs) were initially described as nuclear receptor transcription co-activators, but they have recently been determined to co-regulate transcription initiated by other transcription factors. GAS is a recently identified glutamate-rich protein that interacts with SRC1, but not GRIP1 or AIB1, the other two members of the SRC family. GAS can also interact with the alpha subunit of the estrogen receptor (ERalpha), but not other receptors such as the retinoic acid receptor a, suggesting the interaction between GAS and ERalpha is relatively specific. Depletion of GAS by RNA interference in MCF7 cells led to a decrease in the mRNA and protein levels of ER target genes such as pS2, c-Myc and cyclin D1, indicating the role of GAS in the regulation of ER target genes. GAS has also been found to associate with an SET1-like methyltransferase complex specific for H3K4 methylation, suggesting that GAS has multiple roles in transcriptional regulation.
