Description…

EP300, or E1A binding protein p300, functions as a histone acetyltransferase and regulates transcription via chromatin remodeling. EP300 is important in the processes of cell proliferation and differentiation, and also functions as acetyltransferase for nonhistone targets. EP300 mediates cAMP-gene regulation by binding specifically to phosphorylated CREB protein. This gene has also been identified as a co-activator of HIF1A (hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha), and thus plays a role in the stimulation of hypoxia-induced genes such as VEGF.
