Histone acetyl transferase HAT1 N-terminal (IPR019467)

Short name: Hat1_N

Domain relationships



This entry represents the N-terminal half of the structure of histone acetyl transferase HAT1. It is often found in association with the C-terminal part of IPR000182. It seems to be motifs C and D of the structure. Histone acetyltransferases (HATs) catalyse the transfer of an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA to the lysine E-amino groups on the N-terminal tails of histones. HATs are involved in transcription since histones tend to be hyper-acetylated in actively transcribed regions of chromatin, whereas in transcriptionally silent regions histones are hypo-acetylated [PMID: 9175471].
