Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits lysine N-acetyltransferase activity, acting on acetyl phosphate as donor. Involved in several processes, including double-strand break repair; hematopoietic progenitor cell differentiation; and protein localization to chromatin. Localizes to the chromosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Roberts syndrome and SC phocomelia syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; gonad; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ESCO2 (establishment of sister chromatid cohesion N-acetyltransferase 2).
