BRD4 (Bromodomain-containing protein 4, aka HUNK1) is a chromatin-associated protein with two bromo domains that binds acetylated histone H3 and H4. BRD4 is homologous to Xenopus MCAP, and like MCAP, BRD4 associates with chromosomes during mitosis, predominantly in the non-centromeric regions. A chromosomal aberration involving BRD4 (producing a BRD4-NUT fusion protein) is found in a rare, aggressive, and lethal carcinoma arising in midline organs of young people. BRD4 is involved in the expression of extracellular matrix gene expression, and its misregulation may be involved in breast cancer progression.
