ⓘ Telomere-associated protein RIF1

Telomere-associated protein RIF1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the RIF1 gene.

RIF1 and RIF2 cap the ends of chromosomes telomeres of yeast. In higher eukaryotes, Rif1 is involved in the DNA damage response, organization of chromatin architecture and regulation of replication. RIF1 has been shown to contact RNA in the nucleus.
