a histone acetyltransferase and nuclear receptor coactivator. Plays a central role in creating a multisubunit coactivator complex, which probably acts via remodeling of chromatin. Involved in the coactivation of different nuclear receptors, such as for steroids (GR and ER), retinoids (RARs and RXRs), thyroid hormone (TRs), vitamin D3 (VDR) and prostanoids (PPARs). Involved in the coactivation of the NF-kappa-B pathway via its interaction with the NFKB1 subunit. Activity is enhanced by various hormones and TNF. Acetylation by CREBBP may suppress coactivation of target genes by disrupting its association with nuclear receptors. Frequently amplified or overexpressed in breast and ovarian cancers. Five alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
