Summaries for KAT6B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KAT6B Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a histone acetyltransferase and component of the MOZ/MORF protein complex. In addition to its acetyltransferase activity, the encoded protein has transcriptional activation activity in its N-terminal end and transcriptional repression activity in its C-terminal end. This protein is necessary for RUNX2-dependent transcriptional activation and could be involved in brain development. Mutations have been found in patients with genitopatellar syndrome. A translocation of this gene and the CREBBP gene results in acute myeloid leukemias. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for KAT6B Gene

KAT6B (K(Lysine) Acetyltransferase 6B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KAT6B include genitopatellar syndrome and sbbyss syndrome. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening and RNA Polymerase I Promoter Opening. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor binding and acetyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KAT8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KAT6B Gene

  • Histone acetyltransferase which may be involved in both positive and negative regulation of transcription. Required for RUNX2-dependent transcriptional activation.

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving KAT6B may be a cause acute myeloid leukemias. Translocation t(10;16)(q22;p13) with CREBBP.
  • Ohdo syndrome, SBBYS variant (SBBYSS) [MIM:603736]: A syndrome characterized by distinctive facial appearance with severe blepharophimosis, an immobile mask-like face, a bulbous nasal tip, and a small mouth with a thin upper lip. The condition presents in infancy with severe hypotonia and feeding problems. Associated skeletal problems include joint laxity, abnormally long thumbs and great toes, and dislocated or hypoplastic patellae. Structural cardiac defects are present in around 50% of cases, and dental anomalies, including small and pointed teeth, are common. Optic atrophy and conductive or sensorineural deafness are repeatedly reported. Many affected individuals have abnormalities of thyroid structure or function. SBBYSS is usually associated with severe mental retardation, delayed motor milestones, and significantly impaired speech. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22077973}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Genitopatellar syndrome (GTPTS) [MIM:606170]: A rare disorder consisting of microcephaly, severe psychomotor retardation, and characteristic coarse facial features, including broad nose and small or retracted chin, associated with congenital flexion contractures of the lower extremities, abnormal or missing patellae, and urogenital anomalies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22265014}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
