Bromodomain, brd7_like subgroup. The BRD7 gene encodes a nuclear protein that has been shown to inhibit cell growth and the progression of the cell cycle by regulating cell-cycle genes at the transcriptional level. BRD7 has been identified as a gene involved in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The protein interacts with acetylated histone H3 via its bromodomain. Bromodomains are 110 amino acid long domains that are found in many chromatin associated proteins. Bromodomains can interact specifically with acetylated lysine.
