Summaries for KANSL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KANSL1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a nuclear protein that is a subunit of two protein complexes involved with histone acetylation, the MLL1 complex and the NSL1 complex. The corresponding protein in Drosophila interacts with K(lysine) acetyltransferase 8, which is also a subunit of both the MLL1 and NSL1 complexes. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2012]

GeneCards Summary for KANSL1 Gene

KANSL1 (KAT8 Regulatory NSL Complex Subunit 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KANSL1 include Koolen-De Vries Syndrome and Koolen-De Vries Syndrome Due To A Point Mutation. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization. GO annotations related to this gene include histone acetyltransferase activity (H4-K5 specific) and histone acetyltransferase activity (H4-K16 specific). An important paralog of this gene is KANSL1L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KANSL1 Gene

  • As part of the NSL complex it is involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues and therefore may be involved in the regulation of transcription.
