K311, K318, K320, and K322 of GATA4 are acetylated by p300. GATA4(M456) is lacking p300-induced acetylation, DNA-binding, and transcriptioanl activities. GATA4(M456) serves as a dominant-negative form because it can interact with its partners including p300 (Takaya, 2008).

This plasmid was established by Tomohide Takaya and kindly provided from Hasegawa lab.
