Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; N-acetyltransferase activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cellular protein modification process; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the histone acetyltransferase complex and transcription factor complex. Used to study systemic lupus erythematosus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome and congestive heart failure. Orthologous to human EP300 (E1A binding protein p300).
