Protein polybromo-1 (PB1) also known as BRG1-associated factor 180 (BAF180) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PBRM1 gene.
Component of the SWI/SNF-B (PBAF) chromatin-remodeling complex, which contains at least SMARCA4/BRG1, SMARCB1/SNF5/INI1/BAF47, ACTL6A/BAF53A or ACTL6B/BAF53B, SMARCE1/BAF57, SMARCD1/BAF60A, SMARCD2/BAF60B, and actin.
Loss of PBRM1 expression is associated with renal cell carcinoma progression. (22949125)
- BAP1 and PBRM1 mutation-defined subtypes of clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma with distinct clinical outcomes, a high-risk BAP1-mutant group and a favourable PBRM1-mutant group.
- The molecular genetic classification of clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma could influence treatment decisions in the future.
- The existence of different molecular subtypes with disparate outcomes should be considered in the design and assessment of clinical studies.
