Target Details

  • Target: ATRX
  • Target background: ATRX is a transcriptional regulator which is required for deposition of the histone variant H3.3 at telomeres and other genomic repeats. This is important to maintain silencing at these sites. ATRX mutations are associated with an X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) syndrome ATRX is commonly mutated in cancers which maintain their telomeres by a telomerase independent pathway. This generates alternative lengthening of telomeres.
