This gene is ubiquitously expressed and is involved in the transcriptional coactivation of many different transcription factors. First isolated as a nuclear protein that binds to cAMP-response element binding protein (CREB), this gene is now known to play critical roles in embryonic development, growth control, and homeostasis by coupling chromatin remodeling to transcription factor recognition. The protein encoded by this gene has intrinsic histone acetyltransferase activity and also acts as a scaffold to stabilize additional protein interactions with the transcription complex. This protein acetylates both histone and non-histone proteins. This protein shares regions of very high sequence similarity with protein p300 in its bromodomain, cysteine-histidine-rich regions, and histone acetyltransferase domain. Mutations in this gene cause Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS). Chromosomal translocations involving this gene have been associated with acute myeloid leukemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]
GeneCards Summary for CREBBP Gene
CREBBP (CREB Binding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CREBBP include Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome 1 and Chromosome 16P13.3 Deletion Syndrome, Proximal. Among its related pathways are Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts and Transcription_CREM signaling in testis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include DNA binding transcription factor activity and transcription factor binding. An important paralog of this gene is EP300.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CREBBP Gene
Acetylates histones, giving a specific tag for transcriptional activation. Also acetylates non-histone proteins, like NCOA3 and FOXO1. Binds specifically to phosphorylated CREB and enhances its transcriptional activity toward cAMP-responsive genes. Acts as a coactivator of ALX1. Acts as a circadian transcriptional coactivator which enhances the activity of the circadian transcriptional activators: NPAS2-ARNTL/BMAL1 and CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimers. Acetylates PCNA; acetylation promotes removal of chromatin-bound PCNA and its degradation during nucleotide excision repair (NER) (PubMed:24939902).
Bromodomains (BRDs) are epigenetic reader domains that selectively recognize acetylated lysine residues on the tails of histone proteins, and are the only known protein modules that can target acetylated lysine residues.
