Research Description:
Histone acetyltransferase 1 (Hat1) is an enzyme known to acetylate Lysines 5 and 12 on the tail of the newly synthesized histone H4 during the process of replication-coupled chromatin assembly. In an attempt to learn more about the function of Hat1 and potentially identify other acetylation targets, I am focused on utilizing APEX2-based proximity labeling technique to find proteins that are in vivo proximal to Hat1.
