The human positive coactivator 4 (PC4) acts as a general coactivator for activator-dependent transcription, the activity of which is regulated negatively by phosphorylation. We report here that PC4 can be acetylated specifically by another coactivator, p300. Interestingly, phosphorylation of PC4 by casein kinase II inhibits the p300-mediated acetylation. Mass spectral analysis revealed that there are at least two lysine residues acetylated in PC4, as a result of which its DNA binding activity is stimulated.
