ATPases: Introduction

ATAD2 and ATAD2B are epigenetic regulators that act as co-factors for oncogenic transcription factors. The ATAD2 bromodomain is presumed to bind acetlyated chromatin and function in a manner similar to other bromodomain-containing proteins. ATAD2 overexpression has been shown to correlate with poor prognosis in colorectal [4], gastric [5], breast [1-2], lung [1] and aggressive endometrial [3] cancers. Selective pharmacological inhibitors are being developed as tools to further investigate the function of these proteins, with emphasis on their potential as novel oncology targets.
