ING5(redirected from inhibitor of growth protein 5)
ING5A gene on chromosome 2q37.3 that encodes inhibitor of growth (ING) family member 5, a component of the HBO1 complex responsible for the bulk of histone H4 acetylation in vivo. ING5 is also a component of the MOZ/MORF complex, which has histone H3 acetyltransferase activity. It may regulate DNA replication and act as a transcriptional coactivator by acetylating chromatin.
