ESCO2 (Q56NI9) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis


ESCO2, N-acetyltransferase ESCO2
Enzyme Classification 2.3.1.-
UniProt Q56NI9

Also Known as ESCO2_HUMAN, ESCO2

Acetyltransferase required for the establishment of sister chromatid cohesion (PubMed:15821733, PubMed:15958495). Couples the processes of cohesion and DNA replication to ensure that only sister chromatids become paired together. In contrast to the structural cohesins, the deposition and establishment factors are required only during the S phase. Acetylates the cohesin component SMC3 (PubMed:21111234).

Isoforms / Transcripts (Protein Coding)
