|Synonyms||DGCR1, HIR, TUPLE1|
|Function||Cooperates with ASF1A to promote replication-independent chromatin assembly. Required for the periodic repression of histone gene transcription during the cell cycle. Required for the formation of senescence-associated heterochromatin foci (SAHF) and efficient senescence-associated cell cycle exit.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Nucleus, PML body. Note=Primarily, though not exclusively, localized to the nucleus. Localizes to PML bodies immediately prior to onset of senescence|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in kidney, pancreas and skeletal muscle and at lower levels in brain, heart, liver, lung, and placenta.|

This gene encodes a histone chaperone that preferentiallyplaces the variant histone H3.3 in nucleosomes. Orthologs of thisgene in yeast, flies, and plants are necessary for the formation oftranscriptionally silent heterochomatin. This gene plays animportant role in the formation of the senescence-associatedheterochromatin foci. These foci likely mediate the irreversiblecell cycle changes that occur in senescent cells. It is consideredthe primary candidate gene in some haploinsufficiency syndromessuch as DiGeorge syndrome, and insufficient production of the genemay disrupt normal embryonic development.
