Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0001295
UniProt IDQ8NCD3
Primary gene name(s)HJURP
Synonym gene name(s)FAKTS, FLEG1, URLC9
Protein nameHolliday junction recognition protein
Protein functionCentromeric protein that plays a central role in the incorporation and maintenance of histone H3-like variant CENPA at centromeres. Acts as a specific chaperone for CENPA and is required for the incorporation of newly synthesized CENPA molecules into nucleosomes at replicated centromeres. Prevents CENPA-H4 tetramerization and prevents premature DNA binding by the CENPA-H4 tetramer. Directly binds Holliday junctions. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:19410544, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19410545}.
Subcellular locationNucleus, nucleolus. Chromosome, centromere. Note=Localizes in centromeres during late telophase and early G1, when CENPA nucleosomes are assembled. Localizes to nucleolus during S phase, nucleolus site being often related to storage.
