Gene: Kat6b (lysine acetyltransferase 6B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kat6b
Name: lysine acetyltransferase 6B
Description: Predicted to have histone acetyltransferase activity; histone binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in bipolar disorder; blepharophimosis-intellectual disability syndrome, SBBYS type; breast cancer; and leiomyoma. Orthologous to human KAT6B (lysine acetyltransferase 6B); PARTICIPATES IN histone modification pathway; INTERACTS WITH atrazine; bisphenol A; vinclozolin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: K(lysine) acetyltransferase 6B; LOC305681; LOW QUALITY PROTEIN: histone acetyltransferase KAT6B; RGD1566399; similar to MYST histone acetyltransferase monocytic leukemia 4
