Arylamine N-Acetyltransferase MeSH Descriptor Data 2022


MeSH Heading
Arylamine N-Acetyltransferase
Tree Number(s)
D08.811.913.050.134.138
Unique ID
D001191
RDF Unique Identifier

Annotation
do not confuse with ARYLALKYLAMINE N-ACETYLTRANSFERASE
Scope Note
An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of acetyl groups from ACETYL-COA to arylamines. It can also catalyze acetyl transfer between arylamines without COENZYME A and has a wide specificity for aromatic amines, including SEROTONIN. However, arylamine N-acetyltransferase should not be confused with the enzyme ARYLALKYLAMINE N-ACETYLTRANSFERASE which is also referred to as SEROTONIN ACETYLTRANSFERASE.
