The essential role of acetyllysine binding by the YEATS domain in transcriptional regulation.

ABSTRACT: The YEATS domains of AF9 and Taf14 have recently been found to recognize the histone H3K9ac modification. In this commentary, we discuss the mechanistic and biological implications of this interaction. We compare structures of the YEATS-H3K9ac complexes the highlighting a novel mechanism for the acetyllysine recognition through the aromatic cage. We also summarize the latest findings underscoring a critical role of the acetyllysine binding function of AF9 and Taf14 in transcriptional regulation and DNA repair.
