The protein encoded by this gene is a core subunit of the elongator complex, a histone acetyltransferase complex that associates with RNA polymerase II. In addition to histone acetylation, the encoded protein effects transcriptional elongation and may help remodel chromatin. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]
GeneCards Summary for ELP2 Gene
ELP2 (Elongator Acetyltransferase Complex Subunit 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ELP2 include Mental Retardation, Autosomal Recessive 58 and Autosomal Recessive Intellectual Disability 58. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and TGF-Beta Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and RNA polymerase II complex binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ELP2 Gene
Regulates the ligand-dependent activation of STAT3.
Acts as subunit of the RNA polymerase II elongator complex, which is a histone acetyltransferase component of the RNA polymerase II (Pol II) holoenzyme and is involved in transcriptional elongation. Elongator may play a role in chromatin remodeling and is involved in acetylation of histones H3 and probably H4.
