This gene encodes a protein of unknown function. However, similarity to proteins in yeast and other species suggests that this protein may be an N-acetyltransferase. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for NAA15 Gene
NAA15 (N(Alpha)-Acetyltransferase 15, NatA Auxiliary Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NAA15 include n-terminal acetyltransferase deficiency and gastric cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and N-acetyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NAA16.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAA15 Gene
Auxillary subunit of the N-terminal acetyltransferase A (NatA) complex which displays alpha (N-terminal) acetyltransferase activity. The NAT activity may be important for vascular, hematopoietic and neuronal growth and development. Required to control retinal neovascularization in adult ocular endothelial cells. In complex with XRCC6 and XRCC5 (Ku80), up-regulates transcription from the osteocalcin promoter.
