Gene: Kat2b (lysine acetyltransferase 2B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kat2b
Name: lysine acetyltransferase 2B
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to parathyroid hormone stimulus; positive regulation of chromatin binding activity; and positive regulation of histone acetylation. Localizes to cytosol and nuclear chromatin. Orthologous to human KAT2B (lysine acetyltransferase 2B); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; p53 signaling pathway; RNA polymerase II transcription initiation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: histone acetyltransferase KAT2B; K(lysine) acetyltransferase 2B; LOC301164; p300/CBP-associated factor; Pcaf
