Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits peptide-lysine-N-acetyltransferase activity and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in peptidyl-lysine acetylation; positive regulation of autophagy; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the transcription factor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and limb. Orthologous to human KAT5 (lysine acetyltransferase 5).
