  • Function

    Belongs to the neuron-specific chromatin remodeling complex (nBAF complex). 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). Muscle-specific component of the BAF complex, a multiprotein complex involved in transcriptional activation and repression of select genes by chromatin remodeling (alteration of DNA-nucleosome topology). Specifically binds acetylated lysines on histone 3 and 4 (H3K14ac, H3K9ac, H4K5ac, H4K8ac, H4K12ac, H4K16ac). In the complex, it acts as a tissue-specific anchor between histone acetylations and methylations and chromatin remodeling. It thereby probably plays an essential role in heart and skeletal muscle development.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the requiem/DPF family.
    Contains 1 C2H2-type zinc finger.
    Contains 2 PHD-type zinc fingers.
  • Domain

    The PHD-type zinc fingers mediate the binding to acetylated histones.

Thank you very much for your reply.

I am pleased to hear you would like to participate in the Abtrial program. In order to raise a discount code for you, could you just confirm which antibody it is you would like to purchase to test in the scheme? Ab85360 or ab127703?

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.

As we discussed over the phone, I have looked into the two anti-CERD4 antibodies we currently have in the catalogue and the likelihood that they would cross react with your mouse samples. Following sequence alignment of the immunogens used to raise the ab85360 and ab127703 against the mouse protein I found that they shared 100 and 99% homology respectively with the mouse protein. Both would therefore be likely to cross react. However, as we have not tested this ourselves as yet we would not be able to guarantee it.

If you would like to try either of the antibodies with your mouse samples in Western blotting you would be eligible for our Abtrial testing discount scheme.

This offer means that if you purchase ab85360 or ab127703 as normal, test the antibody with your mouse samples and let us know of the results through an Abreview (no matter whether positive or negative you would then be eligible to claim the value of ab85360 or ab127703 off any product in our catalogue. More information on this offer can be found here:


Please note that the antibody to be tested must be purchased, tested, the Abreview submitted and the free product claimed within a 4 month period.

If you would be interested in participating in this scheme please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to the purchase of ab85360 or ab127703.

I hope this information has been of help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.
