GeneCards Summary for KAT7 Gene
KAT7 (Lysine Acetyltransferase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Chromatin Regulation / Acetylation. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups. An important paralog of this gene is KAT6A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KAT7 Gene
Component of the HBO1 complex which has a histone H4-specific acetyltransferase activity, a reduced activity toward histone H3 and is responsible for the bulk of histone H4 acetylation in vivo. Through chromatin acetylation it may regulate DNA replication and act as a coactivator of TP53-dependent transcription. Specifically represses AR-mediated transcription.
