Summaries for NAT8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NAT8 Gene

  • 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.

GeneCards Summary for NAT8 Gene

NAT8 (N-Acetyltransferase 8 (GCN5-Related, Putative)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include N-acetyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NAT8L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAT8 Gene

  • Acetylates the free alpha-amino group of cysteine S-conjugates to form mercapturic acids (PubMed:20392701). This is the final step in a major route for detoxification of a wide variety of reactive electrophiles which starts with their incorporation into glutathione S-conjugates. The glutathione S-conjugates are then further processed into cysteine S-conjugates and finally mercapturic acids which are water soluble and can be readily excreted in urine or bile. Alternatively, may have a lysine N-acetyltransferase activity catalyzing peptidyl-lysine N6-acetylation of various proteins. Thereby, may regulate apoptosis through the acetylation and the regulation of the expression of PROM1 (PubMed:24556617). May also regulate amyloid beta-peptide secretion through acetylation of BACE1 and the regulation of its expression in neurons (PubMed:19011241).
