MSL1 (Q68DK7) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis

Protein


MSL1, Male-specific lethal 1 homolog
UniProt Q68DK7

Also Known as MSL1_HUMAN, MSL1, MSL1L1

Component of histone acetyltransferase complex responsible for the majority of histone H4 acetylation at 'Lys-16' (H4K16ac) which is implicated in the formation of higher-order chromatin structure. Greatly enhances MSL2 E3 ubiquitin ligase activity, promoting monoubiquitination of histone H2B at 'Lys-34' (H2BK34Ub). This modification in turn stimulates histone H3 methylation at 'Lys-4' (H3K4me) and 'Lys-79' (H3K79me) and leads to gene activation, including that of HOXA9 and MEIS1. In the MSL complex, acts as a scaffold to tether MSL3 and KAT8 together for enzymatic activity regulation. Component of a multisubunit histone acetyltransferase complex (MSL) at least composed of the KAT8/MOF/MYST1, MSL1/hampin, MSL2 and MSL3. Forms a MSL heterotetrameric core with MSL2. Interacts with KAT8 and MSL3; both interactions are direct. Directly interacts with NUPR1. Interacts with TP53BP1; this interaction may be required for MSL1 DNA repair activity, but not for histone acetyltransferase activity.
