Chromodomain-helicase-DNA-binding protein 7

The CHD7 gene encodes a DNA-binding protein which contains helicase domains. It is not certain though that it acts like a helicase. Mutations are found in autosomal dominant disorders such as CHARGE syndrome and Congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism with anosmia 5.
