|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q9JHD2, NP_066564.2|
|Calculated MW||93926 Da|
|Antigen Region||611-638 aa|
|Other Names||Histone acetyltransferase KAT2A, General control of amino acid synthesis protein 5-like 2, Histone acetyltransferase GCN5, HsGCN5, Lysine acetyltransferase 2A, STAF97, KAT2A, GCN5, GCN5L2, HGCN5|
|Target/Specificity||This KAT2A antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 611-638 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human KAT2A.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||KAT2A Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GCN5, GCN5L2, HGCN5|
|Function||Functions as a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) to promote transcriptional activation. Acetylation of histones gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcription activation. Has significant histone acetyltransferase activity with core histones, but not with nucleosome core particles. Also acetylates non- histone proteins, such as CEBPB (PubMed:17301242). Component of the ATAC complex, a complex with histone acetyltransferase activity on histones H3 and H4. In case of HIV-1 infection, it is recruited by the viral protein Tat. Regulates Tat's transactivating activity and may help inducing chromatin remodeling of proviral genes.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues tested, with most abundant expression in ovary|

KAT2A, or GCN5, is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) that functions primarily as a transcriptional activator. It also functions as a repressor of NF-kappa-B (see MIM 164011) by promoting ubiquitination of the NF-kappa-B subunit RELA (MIM 164014) in a HAT-independent manner (Mao et al., 2009 [PubMed 19339690]).
