|Function||Core component of the CAF-1 complex, a complex thought to mediate chromatin assembly in DNA replication and DNA repair. Assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro. CAF-1 performs the first step of the nucleosome assembly process, bringing newly synthesized histones H3 and H4 to replicating DNA; histones H2A/H2B can bind to this chromatin precursor subsequent to DNA replication to complete the histone octamer. CHAF1A binds to histones H3 and H4. It may play a role in heterochromatin maintenance in proliferating cells by bringing newly synthesized cbx proteins to heterochromatic DNA replication foci (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Note=DNA replication foci|

Chromatin assembly factor I (CAF1) is a nuclear complexconsisting of p50, p60 (CHAF1B; MIM 601245), and p150 (CHAF1A)subunits that assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA invitro (Kaufman et al., 1995 [PubMed 7600578]).
