KAT6B is the catalytic subunit of the histone acetyltransferase (HAT) elongator complex, which is ubiquitously expressed in adult human tissues. KAT6B is a 1,781aa-residue protein that contains a strong transcriptional repression domain at its N terminus and a highly potent activation domain at its C terminus (1). These domains of KAT6B may be involved in both positive and negative regulation of transcription and also involved in cerebral cortex development. KAT6B is important for cellular aging, proliferation, positive and negative transcriptional regulation and DNA damage repair (2).
