Summaries for ELP3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ELP3 Gene

  • ELP3 is the catalytic subunit of the histone acetyltransferase elongator complex, which contributes to transcript elongation and also regulates the maturation of projection neurons (Creppe et al., 2009 [PubMed 19185337]).[supplied by OMIM, Apr 2009]

GeneCards Summary for ELP3 Gene

ELP3 (Elongator Acetyltransferase Complex Subunit 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization. GO annotations related to this gene include histone acetyltransferase activity and N-acetyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ELP3 Gene

  • Catalytic histone acetyltransferase subunit of the RNA polymerase II elongator complex, which is a component of the RNA polymerase II (Pol II) holoenzyme and is involved in transcriptional elongation. Elongator may play a role in chromatin remodeling and is involved in acetylation of histones H3 and probably H4. Involved in acetylation of alpha-tubulin (PubMed:19185337). May also have a methyltransferase activity. Involved in cell migration. Involved in neurogenesis. Regulates the migration and branching of projection neurons in the developing cerebral cortex, through a process depending on alpha-tubulin acetylation (By similarity).
