Recombinant KAT6B / MORF (718-1008) protein
KAT6B (Lysine Acetyltransferase 6B), also called as MOZ2, MORF or MYST4, is a histone acetyltransferase and component of the MOZ/MORF protein complex. It has a histone H3 acetyltransferase activity. In addition to its acetyltransferase activity, the encoded full length protein has transcriptional activation activity in its N-terminal end and transcriptional repression activity in its C-terminal end. So it may be involved in both positive and negative regulation of transcription. KAT6B is necessary for RUNX2-dependent transcriptional activation and could be involved in brain development. Mutations have been found in patients with genitopatellar syndrome. A translocation of KAT6B gene and the CREBBP gene results in acute myeloid leukemias. It may also be involved in cerebral cortex development.
