ATRX a global transcriptional regulator. Belongs to the SNF2 family of proteins, many of which modify gene expression via chromatin remodeling activity. Involved in the developmental silencing of imprinted genes in the brain. Contains one PxVxL motif, which is required for interaction with chromoshadow domains. This motif requires additional residues at -7, -6, +4 and +5 relative to the central V which contact the chromoshadow domain. Constitutive mutations in ATRX are associated with brain, facial, and genital abnormalities, and alpha thalassemia. Acquired mutations in ATRX have been observed in preleukemic conditions. Six alternatively spliced human isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
