Gene: KAT2A (lysine acetyltransferase 2A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KAT2A
Name: lysine acetyltransferase 2A
Description: Exhibits several functions, including N-acyltransferase activity; histone deacetylase binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including histone deubiquitination; negative regulation of centriole replication; and protein acylation. Localizes to centrosome and histone acetyltransferase complex. Colocalizes with oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex. Biomarker of lung non-small cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: GCN5; GCN5 (general control of amino-acid synthesis, yeast, homolog)-like 2; GCN5L2; general control of amino acid synthesis protein 5-like 2; General control of amino acid synthesis, yeast, homolog-like 2; hGCN5; histone acetyltransferase GCN5; histone acetyltransferase KAT2A; histone glutaryltransferase KAT2A; histone succinyltransferase KAT2A; hsGCN5; K(lysine) acetyltransferase 2A; MGC102791; PCAF-b; STAF97
