- Primary antibody notes Chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) is a member of the histone chaperone family. It is required for inheritance of epigenetically determined chromosomal states, and in vitro, it promotes the assembly of chromatin during DNA replication and DNA repair. CAF-1 is a complex of three subunits; p150, p60, and p48. This complex is localized to the nucleus of human cells. Both the composition and the biochemical activity of CAF-1 are conserved among human, yeast, and Drosophila.

- FunctionComplex that is 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. The CCR4-NOT complex functions as general transcription regulation complex.
- Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the WD repeat HIR1 family.
Contains 7 WD repeats.
- Developmental stageActive complex is found in G1, S and G2 phases.
modificationsDifferentially phosphorylated during cell cycle. During mitosis the p60 subunit of inactive CAF-1 is hyperphosphorylated and displaced into the cytosol. Progressivly dephosphorylated from G1 to S and G2 phase. Phosphorylated p60 is recruited to chromatin undergoing DNA repair after UV irradiation in G1, S or G2 phases.
- Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. DNA replication foci. Cytoplasmic in M phase.

ab8133 staining cultured human HeLa cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.5% Triton X100 prior to blocking in 5% BSA for 1 hour at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/800 and incubated with the sample for 1 hour at 20°C. A Cy3® conjugated donkey anti-mouse antibody diluted 1/400 was used as the secondary.
