From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a core subunit of the elongator complex, a histone acetyltransferase complex that associates with RNA polymerase II. In addition to histone acetylation, the encoded protein effects transcriptional elongation and may help remodel chromatin. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]
Regulates the ligand-dependent activation of STAT3.
Acts as subunit of the RNA polymerase II elongator complex, which is a histone acetyltransferase component of the RNA polymerase II (Pol II) holoenzyme and is involved in transcriptional elongation. Elongator may play a role in chromatin remodeling and is involved in acetylation of histones H3 and probably H4.
