NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex catalytic subunit ESA1
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Catalytic subunit of the histone acetyltransferase complex (NuA4); acetylates four conserved internal lysines of histone H4 N-terminal tail and can acetylate histone H2A; master regulator of cellular acetylation balance; required for cell cycle progression and transcriptional silencing at the rDNA locus and regulation of autophagy; human ortholog TIP60/KAT5 is implicated in cancer and other diseases, functionally complements lethality of the esa1 null mutation 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
