The mammalian ATM/PI 3-kinase-related TRRAP protein was previously found to be a component of a multi-protein histone acetyltransferase (HAT) complex containing the HAT TIP60. In this report, we identify a previously uncharacterized protein encoded by the FLJ10914 ORF, which we designate MRGBP, as a new component of the TRRAP/TIP60 HAT complex. In addition, through purification of MRGBP and its associated proteins from HeLa cell nuclear extracts, we identify the thyroid receptor coactivating protein (TRCp120), DMAP1, and the related MRG15 and MRGX proteins as MRGBP-associating proteins, and we present biochemical evidence that they are previously unrecognized components of the TRRAP/TIP60 HAT complex. Taken together, our findings shed new light on the structure and function of the mammalian TRRAP/TIP60 histone acetyltransferase complex.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
