Possesses single-stranded DNA-stimulated ATPase and ATP- dependent DNA helicase (3' to 5') activity. Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex which is involved in transcriptional activation of select genes principally by acetylation of nucleosomal histones H4 and H2A. This modification may both alter nucleosome - DNA interactions and promote interaction of the modified histones with other proteins which positively regulate transcription. This complex may be required for the activation of transcriptional programs associated with oncogene and proto-oncogene mediated growth induction, tumor suppressor mediated growth arrest and replicative senescence, apoptosis, and DNA repair. The NuA4 complex ATPase and helicase activities seem to be, at least in part, contributed by the association of RUVBL1 and RUVBL2 with EP400. NuA4 may also play a direct role in DNA repair when recruited to sites of DNA damage. RUVBL1 plays an essential role in oncogenic transformation by MYC and also modulates transcriptional activation by the LEF1/TCF1- CTNNB1 complex. Belongs to the ruvB family. Forms homotypic and heterotypic interactions. Forms a multimeric complex with RUVBL2. Interacts with the transcriptional activation domain of MYC. Component of the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme complex. May also act to bridge the LEF1/TCF1-CTNNB1 complex and TBP. Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex which contains the catalytic subunit KAT5/TIP60 and the subunits EP400, TRRAP/PAF400, BRD8/SMAP, EPC1, DMAP1/DNMAP1, RUVBL1/TIP49, RUVBL2, ING3, actin, ACTL6A/BAF53A, MORF4L1/MRG15, MORF4L2/MRGX, MRGBP, YEATS4/GAS41, VPS72/YL1 and MEAF6. The NuA4 complex interacts with MYC and the adenovirus E1A protein. RUVBL1 interacts with EP400. Component of a NuA4-related complex which contains EP400, TRRAP/PAF400, SRCAP, BRD8/SMAP, EPC1, DMAP1/DNMAP1, RUVBL1/TIP49, RUVBL2, actin, ACTL6A/BAF53A, VPS72 and YEATS4/GAS41. Component of the BAF53 complex, at least composed of ACTL6A/BAF53A, RUVBL1/TIP49, SMARCA2/BRM, and TRRAP/PAF400. Component of some MLL1/MLL complex, at least composed of the core components MLL, ASH2L, HCFC1/HCF1, WDR5 and RBBP5, as well as the facultative components C17orf49, CHD8, E2F6, HSP70, IN80C, KIAA1267, LAS1L, MAX, MCRS1, MGA, MYST1/MOF, PELP1, PHF20, PRP31, RING2, RUVB1/TIP49A, RUVB2/TIP49B, SENP3, TAF1, TAF4, TAF6, TAF7, TAF9 and TEX10. Associates with alpha and gamma tubulins, particularly during metaphase and early anaphase. Interacts with NPAT. Component of the chromatin-remodeling INO80 complex, at least composed of ACTL6A, ACTR5, ACTR8, RVBL1, RVBL2, INO80, INO80B, INO80C, INO80D and INO80E. Interacts with IGHMBP2. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
