Scientific Background : KAT2B (also known as PCAF) is a transcription cofactor with a histone acetyltransferase (HAT) activity. KAT2B protein associates with p300/CBP which is a large nuclear protein that bind to many sequence-specific factors that are involved in cell growth and/or differentiation, including c-jun and the adenoviral oncoprotein E1A (1). KAT2B has histone acetyl transferase activity with core histones and nucleosome core particles indicating that KAT2B plays a direct role in transcriptional regulation (2). PCAF functions as a coordinating factor in the regulation of HIF1A-mediated apoptosis and p53-dependent cell cycle progression.
