HATs can be separated into two groups: Type A located in the nucleus and acetylating histones, in the timing needed for transcriptional activation, and Type B located in the cytoplasm, responsible for histone acetylation during replication and before the chromatin's assemblage.
Despite a cytosolic localization, [alpha]-tubulin acetyltransferase 1 (ATAT1), mainly responsible for [alpha]-tubulin acetylation at lysine 40 in higher organisms, has been included in the GNAT superfamily [21-24].
Mice were anaesthetized and perfused via intracardiac infusion with 0.1 M PBS and then 4% paraformaldehyde (PFA, dissolved in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, pH 7.4) 90 min after completion of phase III (choice phase) or 60 minutes after phase II (learning phase) for c-fos and histone H3 acetylation, respectively.
The inhibition of CAY10683 on inflammation is mainly via the histones acetylation. The present study not only proved that CAY10683 protected the liver in ALF rats as we previously described in ACLF rats but also further demonstrated its protection on intestine permeability.
The Mann-Whitney test was used to compare class I HDAC mRNA expression, HAT activity, HDAC activity, and total histone H3 and H4 acetylation levels between RA and HC.

Protein acetylation was involved in AMPK regulation of postmortem glycolysis
This study is also the first to show that Tq mediates posttranslational modification of histone acetylation and inhibition of HDACs expression.
This result suggested that the extracts contained enzymes and substrates for protein acetylation and that the reaction was enzymatic as it is well known.
These residues lie within a nuclear localization signal (NLS) region and acetylation is necessary to shuttle CIITA to the nucleus.
Histone methylation, in contrast to acetylation, is more constant and long-standing [48].
