GeneCards Summary for KAT7 Gene
KAT7 (K(Lysine) Acetyltransferase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Androgen Signaling and Regulation of Androgen receptor activity. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and histone acetyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KAT8.
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.
