    basic FUNCTION
  • stabilizes NMI through the formation of distinct cytoplasmic speckles provides a new mechanism to modulate NMI-mediated functions
  • histone acetyltransferase implicated in transcriptional control and DNA double-strand break repair
  • downregulates SRSF2 phosphorylation by inhibiting the nuclear translocation of both SRPK1 and SRPK2 kinases
  • recruits MYOD1 on the myogenin promoter, and also increases the levels of acetylated histones H3 and H4 during myogenic differentiation
  • requirement of KAT5-mediated acetylation of ULK1 in serum deprivation–induced autophagy
  • positively regulates ZBTB7B-mediated repression of eomesodermin in human CD4+ T cells
  • plays an essential role in oncogenic RAS-induced senescence
  • KAT5 tyrosine phosphorylation is a key event in the sensing of genomic and chromatin perturbations, with a key role for ABL1 in such processes
  • in embryonic stem cells (ESCs), activates genes required for proliferation and silences genes that promote differentiation
  • CREBBP and KAT5 coordinate histone acetylation at both local and global levels to facilitate RAS-induced transformation
  • autophagy-activating pathway that comprises GSK3A, GSK3B, KAT5, and ULK1
  • a component
  • with ATM form a stable complex that is recruited to DSBs
    small molecule
  • interacts with the NID repeats of NMI, a region essential for the cytoplamic localization and homo- and heterodimerization of NMI
  • interaction between KAT5 and EP400 involving the SANT domain, which binds to the HAT domain of KAT5 and suppresses HAT activity
  • NUT can interact with additional HAT enzymes such as KAT5 and KAT2A to induce the histone hyperacetylation on chromatin
  • role for GPR50 in NR3C1 signalling through interaction with kat5
  • required for myoblast differentiation via enhancement of the transcriptional activity of MYOD1
  • multiple protein-protein interactions by the protein acetyltransferase KAT5 are required for estrogen-induced transcription of a subset of estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1) target genes in cells
  • cooperation of KAT5 with ESR1 and other chromatin-remodeling enzymes is required for estrogen-induced transcription
  • interactions of NRL with c-Jun N-terminal kinase 1 (MAPK8) and HIV Tat-interacting protein 60 (KAT5)
  • SIRT1 deacetylation of the enzymatic domains of KAT8 and KAT5 inhibits their acetyltransferase activity and promotes ubiquitination-dependent degradation of these proteins
  • binds with PAX6 and this physical interaction leads to the full-transcriptional activation of PAX6 during retina development
  • KAT5-mediated CDKN1A acetylation is a novel and essential regulatory process required for CDKN1A-dependent DNA damage-induced cell-cycle arrest
  • ING5 functions as a cofactor of KAT5 in the acetylation of TP53 at K120 in response to DNA damage
  • cascade of posttranslational modifications involving MAPK14, KAT5, and MAPKAPK5, three proteins that are essential for ras-induced senescence
  • is a co-repressor of ZBTB7B-target genes, where ectopically expressed KAT5 increased ZBTB7B protein stability by promoting its acetylation at its Lys(360) residue
  • HDAC6 plays a major role in the modulation of KAT5-EP400 function in stem cells
  • activation of KAT5 by DSBs requires interaction of KAT5 with histone H3 methylated on lysine 9 (H3K9me3)
  • RANBP9-KAT5 interaction dramatically relocated RANBP9 from a widespread cellular distribution to nuclear speckles
  • KAT5 chromodomain was found to facilitate SOX4 recruitment to the CALD1 promoter, which is involved in chromatin remodeling at the promoter
  • PDCD5 participates likely in immune regulation by promoting regulatory T cell function via the PDCD5-KAT5-FOXP3 pathway (
  • cell & other
    inhibited by ATF2 who promotes degradation of KAT5
    repressed by KDM5B (repress the expression of the KAT5 gene through its H3K4 demethylation on the promoter)
    Other regulated in cells through post-translational modifications or subcellular localisation of the protein
    regulated by sumoylation which augments its acetyltransferase activity
    tyrosine phosphorylation of KAT5 increases after DNA damage in a manner that promotes KAT5 binding to the histone mark H3K9me3
