Protein Information
Name KAT2A
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. 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. Component of the ATAC complex, a complex with histone acetyltransferase activity on histones H3 and H4.
Cellular Location Nucleus.
Tissue Location Expressed in all tissues tested, with most abundant expression in ovary

KAT2A, or GCN5, is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) thatfunctions primarily as a transcriptional activator. It alsofunctions as a repressor of NF-kappa-B (see MIM 164011) bypromoting ubiquitination of the NF-kappa-B subunit RELA (MIM164014) in a HAT-independent manner (Mao et al., 2009 [PubMed19339690]).
