MCB 252 Cell Biology, Spring 2008 Handout 09 HATs have been identified from yeast to man (low-high eukaryotes) and are conserved  ATP dependent acetyle transferases. The first acetyltransferase identified in yeast was the TF  Gcn5 , a transcriptional co- activator. Others now identified include;  CBP  (CREB binding protein),  PCAF  (CBP-associated  factor),  hTAFII250 TFIIIC  (activation by RNAPIII),  SRC1  (steroid co-activator). They are recruited to promoter regions by DNA binding activators. Histone Acetyl transferases (HATs) and transcriptional activation: • Regulation of transcription: Chromatin dynamics
