Bromodomain; brd1_like subfamily. BRD1 is a mammalian gene which encodes for a nuclear protein assumed to be a transcriptional regulator. BRD1 has been implicated with brain development and susceptibility to schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. Bromodomains are 110 amino acid long domains that are found in many chromatin associated proteins. Bromodomains can interact specifically with acetylated lysine.
