Summaries for KAT6A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KAT6A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the MOZ, YBFR2, SAS2, TIP60 family of histone acetyltransferases. The protein is composed of a nuclear localization domain, a double C2H2 zinc finger domain that binds to acetylated histone tails, a histone acetyl-transferase domain, a glutamate/aspartate-rich region, and a serine- and methionine-rich transactivation domain. It is part of a complex that acetylates lysine-9 residues in histone 3, and in addition, it acts as a co-activator for several transcription factors. Allelic variants of this gene are associated with autosomal dominant mental retardation-32. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015]

GeneCards Summary for KAT6A Gene

KAT6A (K(Lysine) Acetyltransferase 6A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KAT6A include acute myeloid leukemia with t(8;16)(p11;p13) translocation and neonatal leukemia. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening and RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is KAT8.

Disorders for KAT6A Gene

KAT6A_HUMAN
  • Note=Chromosomal aberrations involving KAT6A may be a cause of acute myeloid leukemias. Translocation t(8;16)(p11;p13) with CREBBP; translocation t(8;22)(p11;q13) with EP300. KAT6A-CREBBP may induce leukemia by inhibiting RUNX1-mediated transcription. Inversion inv(8)(p11;q13) generates the KAT6A-NCOA2 oncogene, which consists of the N-terminal part of KAT6A and the C-terminal part of NCOA2/TIF2. KAT6A-NCOA2 binds to CREBBP and disrupts its function in transcription activation.
  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving KAT6A is a cause of therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome. Translocation t(2;8)(p23;p11.2) with ASXL2 generates a KAT6A-ASXL2 fusion protein.
