Official Full Name
K(lysine) acetyltransferase 2A
KAT2A, or GCN5, is a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) that functions primarily as a transcriptional activator. It also;functions as a repressor of NF-kappa-B (see MIM 164011) by promoting ubiquitination of the NF-kappa-B subunit RELA;(MIM 164014) in a HAT-independent manner (Mao et al., 2009 (PubMed 19339690)).
