Disease relevance of JARID1A

  • Two cDNAs were isolated that encode retinoblastoma binding proteins (RBP-1 and RBP-2) [1].
  • Therefore, in this study, we re-established the pRb-modulating function of RBP2-H1 in highly metastatic A375-SM melanoma cells by re-expressing its C-term (cRBP2-H1) [2].
  • These include human hairless, mutated in individuals with alopecia universalis, retinoblastoma-binding protein 2 and several putative chromatin-associated proteins [3].

High impact information on JARID1A


Biological context of JARID1A


Other interactions of JARID1A

  • Identification of NUP98 abnormalities in acute leukemia: JARID1A (12p13) as a new partner gene [12].
  • Homology analysis indicated that the predicted product has an overall 56% amino acid identity to RBBP2, which plays an important role in RB tumor suppressor regulation [11].
