Brg1 (Brahma-related gene 1) is an ATPase subunit of SWI2/SNF2-like chromatin-remodeling complexes that enable access of regulatory and effector proteins in transcription, DNA repair and DNA replication. Although Brg1-containing complexes are not essential for general cell survival, they participate in transcriptional regulation of several hundred genes including those involved in interferon and stress response, immune cells differentiation, neurogenesis, cell cycle etc. and is absolutely necessary for mouse embryogenesis. Brg1 is also involved in cell growth arrest, senescence and tumour supression.
