The histone acetylase PCAF is a nuclear receptor coactivator.
It is demonstrated that the RXR/RAR heterodimer directly recruits PCAF from mammalian cell extracts in a ligand-dependent manner and that increased expression of PCAF leads to enhanced retinoid-responsive transcription, suggesting that PCAF may play a more central role in nuclear receptor function than previously anticipated.
Transcription factor-specific requirements for coactivators and their acetyltransferase functions.
Different classes of mammalian transcription factors-nuclear receptors, cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate-regulated enhancer binding protein (CREB), and signal transducer and activator of
Coactivator and corepressor complexes in nuclear receptor function.
Synergy among Nuclear Receptor Coactivators: Selective Requirement for Protein Methyltransferase and Acetyltransferase Activities
A transfection assay system is established under which the activity of various NR is highly or completely dependent on synergistic cooperation among three classes of coactivators: a p160 coactivator, the protein methyltransferase CARM1, and any of the three protein acetyltransferases, p300, CBP, or p/CAF.
Identification of a Novel SNF2/SWI2 Protein Family Member, SRCAP, Which Interacts with CREB-binding Protein*
It is reported that CBP also interacts with a novel ATPase termedSnf2-Related CBPActivator Protein (SRCAP), which contains the conserved ATPase domain found within members of the Snf2 family.
Possible Role of Transcriptional Coactivator P/CAF and Nuclear Acetylation in Calcium-induced Keratinocyte Differentiation*
The results suggest that P/CAF HAT activity and induction of ap97 are involved in calcium-dependent keratinocyte differentiation, which is thought to be involved in several biological events.


The CBP co-activator is a histone acetyltransferase
It is shown that CBP has intrinsic HAT activity, and Targeting CBP-associated H AT activity to specific promoters may be a mechanism by which E1A acts as a transcriptional activator.
The nuclear hormone receptor coactivator SRC-1 is a specific target of p300.
It is shown that SRC-1 encodes a new member of the basic helix-loop-helix-PAS domain family and that it physically interacts with the retinoic acid receptor in response to hormone binding.
Nuclear receptor coactivators and corepressors.
This review describes the basal and coregulatory factors that are currently known to interact with nuclear receptors, and suggests various mechanisms by which coactivators and corepressors act.
A complex containing N-CoR, mSln3 and histone deacetylase mediates transcriptional repression
Data predict that the ligand-induced switch of heterodimeric nuclear receptors from repressor to activator functions involves the exchange of complexes containing histone deacetylases with those that have histone acetylase activity.
A possible involvement of TIF1 alpha and TIF1 beta in the epigenetic control of transcription by nuclear receptors.
How the function of members of the TIF1 family in the control of transcription could be exerted at the level of the structure of the chromatin template is discussed.
Identification of TRACs (T3 receptor-associating cofactors), a family of cofactors that associate with, and modulate the activity of, nuclear hormone receptors.
It is suggested that TRACs and related cofactors may participate in dictating the pleiotropic transcriptional capacities of the nuclear hormone receptors.
Nuclear protein CBP is a coactivator for the transcription factor CREB
Fluorescence anisotropy measurements are used to define the equi-librium binding parameters of the phosphoCREB:CBP interaction and report here that CBP can activate transcription through a region in its carboxy terminus.
