ARID1A, also named as BAF250, BAF250A, C1orf4, OSA1 and SMARCF1, is involved in transcriptional activation and repression of select genes by chromatin remodeling (alteration of DNA-nucleosome topology). It binds DNA non-specifically. It is also involved in vitamin D-coupled transcription regulation via its association with the WINAC complex, a chromatin-remodeling complex recruited by vitamin D receptor (VDR), which is required for the ligand-bound VDR-mediated transrepression of the CYP27B1 gene. ARID1A belongs to the neural progenitors-specific chromatin remodeling complex (npBAF complex) and the neuron-specific chromatin remodeling complex (nBAF complex). During neural development a switch from a stem/progenitor to a post-mitotic chromatin remodeling mechanism occurs as neurons exit the cell cycle and become committed to their adult state. The antibody is specific to ARID1A.
