Inhibitor of growth protein 4 - Q9UNL4 (ING4_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Component of HBO1 complexes, which specifically mediate acetylation of histone H3 at 'Lys-14' (H3K14ac), and have reduced activity toward histone H4 (PubMed:16387653). Through chromatin acetylation it may function in DNA replication (PubMed:16387653). May inhibit tumor progression by modulating the transcriptional output of signaling pathways which regulate cell proliferation (PubMed:15251430, PubMed:15528276). Can suppress brain tumor angiogenesis through transcriptional repression of RELA/NFKB3 target genes when complexed with RELA (PubMed:15029197). May also specifically suppress loss of contact inhibition elicited by activated oncogenes such as MYC (PubMed:15029197). Represses hypoxia inducible factor's (HIF) activity by interacting with HIF prolyl hydroxylase 2 (EGLN1) (PubMed:15897452). Can enhance apoptosis induced by serum starvation in mammary epithelial cell line HC11 (By similarity). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer (PubMed:19187765, PubMed:22334692). Component of the HBO1 complex composed of KAT7/HBO1, MEAF6, ING4 or ING5, and one scaffold subunit: complexes containing BRPF scaffold (BRPF1, BRD1/BRPF2 or BRPF3) direct KAT7/HBO1 specificity towards H3K14ac, while complexes containing JADE scaffold (JADE1, JADE2 and JADE3) mediate acetylation of histone H4 (PubMed:16387653). Interacts with H3K4me3 and to a lesser extent with H3K4me2, the interaction augments KAT7/HBO1 acetylation activity on H3 tails (PubMed:16728974, PubMed:18381289). Interacts with EP300, RELA and TP53; these interactions may be indirect (PubMed:12750254, PubMed:15029197). Interacts with EGLN1 (PubMed:15897452). Interacts with BCL2A1 (By similarity). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
