Chromodomain Y-like protein

CDYL has a chromodomain that is known to bind to chromatin. The gene for CDYL is present on Y chromosome and the protein exhibits in vitro acetyltransferase activity. CDYL is predominantly expressed in human testis and is thought to play a role in male infertility (PMID: 12072557).
