MYST histone acetyltransferase (monocytic leukemia) 3, also known as MYST3, is an enzyme that, in humans, is encoded by the MYST3 gene.[1][2]


MYST3 contains two nuclear localization domains, a C2HC3 zinc finger and an acetyltransferase domain. This structure suggests that MYST3 functions as a chromatin-bound acetyltransferase.[2] MYST3 is important for proper development of hematopoietic stem cells.[3]
