Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits acetyltransferase activity and enzyme binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone acetyltransferase activity (H4-K5 specific) and histone acetyltransferase activity (H4-K8 specific). Predicted to be involved in several processes, including histone H4 acetylation; myeloid cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to kinetochore and nuclear matrix. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; limb; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human KAT8 (lysine acetyltransferase 8).
