|Function||Involved in transcriptional activation and repression of select genes by chromatin remodeling (alteration of DNA-nucleosome topology). Required for maximal ATPase activity of SMARCA4/BRG1/BAF190A and for association of the SMARCA4/BRG1/BAF190A containing remodeling complex BAF with chromatin/nuclear matrix. Belongs to the neural progenitors- specific chromatin remodeling complex (npBAF complex) and is required for the proliferation of neural progenitors. During neural development a switch from a stem/progenitor to a post- mitotic chromatin remodeling mechanism occurs as neurons exit the cell cycle and become committed to their adult state. The transition from proliferating neural stem/progenitor cells to post-mitotic neurons requires a switch in subunit composition of the npBAF and nBAF complexes. As neural progenitors exit mitosis and differentiate into neurons, npBAF complexes which contain ACTL6A/BAF53A and PHF10/BAF45A, are exchanged for homologous alternative ACTL6B/BAF53B and DPF1/BAF45B or DPF3/BAF45C subunits in neuron-specific complexes (nBAF). The npBAF complex is essential for the self-renewal/proliferative capacity of the multipotent neural stem cells. The nBAF complex along with CREST plays a role regulating the activity of genes essential for dendrite growth (By similarity). Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complex which is involved in transcriptional activation of select genes principally by acetylation of nucleosomal histones H4 and H2A. This modification may both alter nucleosome - DNA interactions and promote interaction of the modified histones with other proteins which positively regulate transcription. This complex may be required for the activation of transcriptional programs associated with oncogene and proto-oncogene mediated growth induction, tumor suppressor mediated growth arrest and replicative senescence, apoptosis, and DNA repair. NuA4 may also play a direct role in DNA repair when recruited to sites of DNA damage. Putative core component of the chromatin remodeling INO80 complex which is involved in transcriptional regulation, DNA replication and probably DNA repair.|

This gene encodes a family member of actin-relatedproteins (ARPs), which share significant amino acid sequenceidentity to conventional actins. Both actins and ARPs have an actinfold, which is an ATP-binding cleft, as a common feature. The ARPsare involved in diverse cellular processes, including vesiculartransport, spindle orientation, nuclear migration and chromatinremodeling. This gene encodes a 53 kDa subunit protein of the BAF(BRG1/brm-associated factor) complex in mammals, which isfunctionally related to SWI/SNF complex in S. cerevisiae andDrosophila; the latter is thought to facilitate transcriptionalactivation of specific genes by antagonizing chromatin-mediatedtranscriptional repression. Together with beta-actin, it isrequired for maximal ATPase activity of BRG1, and for theassociation of the BAF complex with chromatin/matrix. Threetranscript variants that encode two different protein isoforms havebeen described.
