KAT8 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"KAT8" - Histone acetyltransferase KAT8 in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

KAT8Histone acetyltransferase KAT8; Histone acetyltransferase which may be involved in transcriptional activation. May influence the function of ATM. As part of the MSL complex it is involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 producing specifically H4K16ac. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. That activity is less specific than the one of the MSL complex. Can also acetylate TP53/p53 at ’Lys-120’ (467 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MSL1
Male-specific lethal 1 homolog; Component of histone acetyltransferase complex responsible for the majority of histone H4 acetylation at ’Lys-16’ (H4K16ac) which is implicated in the formation of higher-order chromatin structure. Greatly enhances MSL2 E3 ubiquitin ligase activity, promoting monoubiquitination of histone H2B at ’Lys-34’ (H2BK34Ub). This modification in turn stimulates histone H3 methylation at ’Lys-4’ (H3K4me) and ’Lys-79’ (H3K79me) and leads to gene activation, including that of HOXA9 and MEIS1. In the MSL complex, acts as a scaffold to tether MSL3 and KAT8 together fo [...] (351 aa)

MSL2
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase MSL2; Component of histone acetyltransferase complex responsible for the majority of histone H4 acetylation at lysine 16 which is implicated in the formation of higher-order chromatin structure. Acts as an E3 ubiquitin ligase that promotes monoubiquitination of histone H2B at ’Lys-35’ (H2BK34Ub), but not that of H2A. This activity is greatly enhanced by heterodimerization with MSL1. H2B ubiquitination in turn stimulates histine H3 methylation at ’Lys-4’ (H3K4me) and ’Lys-79’ (H3K79me) and leads to gene activation, including that of HOXA9 and MEIS1 (577 aa)

KANSL1
KAT8 regulatory NSL complex subunit 1; As part of the NSL complex it is involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues and therefore may be involved in the regulation of transcription (1105 aa)
     
  0.993
MORF4L1
Mortality factor 4-like protein 1; Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complex which is involved in transcriptional activation of select genes principally by acetylation of nucleosomal histones H4 and H2A. This modification may both alter nucleosome - DNA interactions and promote interaction of the modified histones with other proteins which positively regulate transcription. This complex may be required for the activation of transcriptional programs associated with oncogene and proto-oncogene mediated growth induction, tumor suppressor mediated growth arrest and repl [...] (362 aa)
     
  0.986
WDR5
WD repeat-containing protein 5; Contributes to histone modification. May position the N- terminus of histone H3 for efficient trimethylation at ’Lys-4’. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at ’Lys-4’ of histone H3. H3 ’Lys-4’ methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. May regulate osteoblasts differentiation; Belongs to the WD repeat WDR5/wds family (334 aa)
     
  0.978
MSL3
Male-specific lethal 3 homolog; May be involved in chromatin remodeling and transcriptional regulation. May have a role in X inactivation. Component of the MSL complex which is responsible for the majority of histone H4 acetylation at ’Lys-16’ which is implicated in the formation of higher-order chromatin structure. Specifically recognizes histone H4 monomethylated at ’Lys-20’ (H4K20Me1) in a DNA-dependent manner and is proposed to be involved in chromosomal targeting of the MSL complex (521 aa)
     
  0.978
KANSL3
KAT8 regulatory NSL complex subunit 3; As part of the NSL complex it is involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues and therefore may be involved in the regulation of transcription (878 aa)
     
  0.978
TP53
Cellular tumor antigen p53; Acts as a tumor suppressor in many tumor types; induces growth arrest or apoptosis depending on the physiological circumstances and cell type. Involved in cell cycle regulation as a trans-activator that acts to negatively regulate cell division by controlling a set of genes required for this process. One of the activated genes is an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases. Apoptosis induction seems to be mediated either by stimulation of BAX and FAS antigen expression, or by repression of Bcl-2 expression. In cooperation with mitochondrial PPIF is involved in [...] (393 aa)

MCRS1
Microspherule protein 1; Modulates the transcription repressor activity of DAXX by recruiting it to the nucleolus. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. Putative regulatory component of the chromatin remodeling INO80 complex which is involved in transcriptional regulation, DNA replication and probably DNA repair. May also be an inhibitor of TERT telomerase activity. Binds to G-quadruplex structures in mRNA. Binds to RNA homopolymer poly(G) and poly(U) (475 aa)
     
  0.973
MEAF6
Chromatin modification-related protein MEAF6; Component of the NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex which is involved in transcriptional activation of select genes principally by acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 and H2A. This modification may both alter nucleosome - DNA interactions and promote interaction of the modified histones with other proteins which positively regulate transcription. Component of the HBO1 complex which has a histone H4-specific acetyltransferase activity, a reduced activity toward histone H3 and is responsible for the bulk of histone H4 acetylation in viv [...] (201 aa)
