Gene: NAT8 (N-acetyltransferase 8 (putative)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NAT8
Name: N-acetyltransferase 8 (putative)
Description: This gene, isolated using the differential display method to detect tissue-specific genes, is specifically expressed in kidney and liver. The encoded protein shows amino acid sequence similarity to N-acetyltransferases. A similar protein in Xenopus affects cell adhesion and gastrulation movements, and may be localized in the secretory pathway. A highly similar paralog is found in a cluster with this gene.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
