dGcn5, Pcaf, KAT, dKAT2, dmGCN5
a major histone H3 acetylase in Drosophila that plays a key role in the control of specific morphogenetic cascades during developmental transitions - Gcn5 interacts with Cyclin A to facilitate proper turnover in germ-line stem cells - Gcn5 promotes Cyclin A ubiquitination, which is dependent on its acetylating activity.

Please Note This section lists cDNAs and ESTs that fall within the genomic extent of the gene model, which may include cDNAs and ESTs of genes within introns, or of overlapping genes. Please see GBrowse for alignment of the cDNAs and ESTs to the gene model.
For each fully sequenced cDNA the DGRC maintains various forms of the cDNA (e.g tagged or untagged) in several different host vectors for subsequent cloning and expression in Drosophila and Drosophila cell lines.
