GNAT Family

Description

Vetting et al. 2005: The Gcn5-related N-acetyltransferases are an enormous superfamily of enzymes that are universally distributed in nature and that use acyl-CoAs to acylate their cognate substrates. In this review, we will examine those members of this superfamily that have been both structurally and mechanistically characterized. These include aminoglycoside N-acetyltransferases, serotonin N-acetyltransferase, glucosamine-6-phosphate N-acetyltransferase, the histone acetyltransferases, mycothiol synthase, protein N-myristoyltransferase, and the Fem family of amino acyl transferases.

Members of this family
