Acetylation, a type of post-translation modification (PTM), is a term used to describe the addition of an acetyl group to an amino acid. Protein acetylation most commonly occurs on the amino acid, lysine, and commonly occurs to histone proteins, tubulins and p53. Acetylation of histones is catalyzed by histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and histone deacetylases (HDACs). Histones acetylation occurs on highly conserved N-terminal lysine residues and plays a critical role in cell cycle progression, transcriptional regulation and development.
