Gene: NAT8 (N-acetyltransferase 8 (putative)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NAT8
Name: N-acetyltransferase 8 (putative)
RGD ID: 1350744
Description: Exhibits cysteine-S-conjugate N-acetyltransferase activity and lysine N-acetyltransferase activity, acting on acetyl phosphate as donor. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; peptide metabolic process; and peptidyl-lysine N6-acetylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including endoplasmic reticulum; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acetyltransferase 2; ATase2; camello-like protein 1; CCNAT; CML1; cysteinyl-conjugate N-acetyltransferase; GLA; Hcml1; kidney- and liver-specific gene product; N-acetyltransferase 8; N-acetyltransferase 8 (camello like); N-acetyltransferase 8 (GCN5-related, putative); probable N-acetyltransferase 8; TSC501; TSC510
