ASF1 like histone chaperone
crystal structure of the cia- histone h3-h4 complex
In molecular biology, the ASF1 like histone chaperone family of proteins includes the yeast and human ASF1 proteins. These proteins have histone chaperone activity. ASF1 participates in both the replication-dependent and replication-independent pathways. The three-dimensional structure has been determined as a compact immunoglobulin-like beta sandwich fold topped by three helical linkers.
