Summaries for NAT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NAT1 Gene

  • This gene is one of two arylamine N-acetyltransferase (NAT) genes in the human genome, and is orthologous to the mouse and rat Nat2 genes. The enzyme encoded by this gene catalyzes the transfer of an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA to various arylamine and hydrazine substrates. This enzyme helps metabolize drugs and other xenobiotics, and functions in folate catabolism. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Variants for NAT1 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAT1 Gene

N-acetylation polymorphism is determined by a low or high NAT activity in liver and has been implicated in the action and toxicity of amine-containing drugs. Slow acetylation genotypes have been associated with significant lung cancer risk. Candidate risk factor for susceptibility to neural tube defects. The NAT1*10 allele has been associated with increased risk of colon and urinary bladder cancers and with higher levels of N-acetyltransferase activity and DNA adducts in aromatic amine tumor target organs such as colon and urinary bladder (PubMed:7585580).
