Day 358 has 136 protein-coding genes (browser view) including EP300 (E1A binding protein p300).

EP300 is an important regulatory protein similar to CEBPA which we saw on┬áDay 343 (19p11-19q13.11): a bZIP transcription factor. It is an example of a gene that’s named simply for the weight of its protein: all that was known about it as first was that it was about 300 kilodaltons.
