    basic FUNCTION
  • acting as an histone acetyltransferase involved in transcriptional activation
  • required specifically for the maintenance of H4K16 acetylation and normal chromatin architecture of all cells of early male and female embryos
  • through H4K16ac (histone code), has a critical role at multiple stages in the cellular DNA damage response and DSB repair
  • major enzyme to catalyze acetylation of histone H4 lysine 16 (K16) and is highly conserved through evolution
  • involved in H4 K16 acetylation and playing an important roles in DNA damage repair by modulating recruitment of DNA damage repair protein MDC1
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription, regulation
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • member of the MYST (Moz-Ybf2/Sas3-Sas2-Tip60) family of histone acetyltransferases (HATs), a second HAT complex, designated the non-specific lethal (NSL) complex
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule metal binding,
  • Zn2+
  • protein
  • chromodomain of MORF4L1/MRG15
  • ATM
  • MLL C-terminal domain
  • MSL3 interact directly with MYST1 via its conserved C-terminal MRG domain
  • orchestrates H4K16 acetylation and H3K4 trimethylation for activation of multiple genes by recruiting KAT8 and causing displacement of KDM5B
