In particular, two histone acetyltransferases (HATs), the CREB binding protein (CBP/p300) and p300/CBP associated factor (pCAF), are recruited to the MHC II promoter where they assist in the remodeling of chromatin which occurs before and in the presence of CIITA [8, 9].
HATs contain a bromodomain that recognizes and binds to histone acetylation, and they are categorized into three major families, GNAT (GCN5 and PCAF), MYST (Tip60 and MOF), and CBP/p300.
