Entrez Gene Summary for NAT8B Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is highly similar to the N-acetyltransferase 8 (NAT8) gene product, which is a kidney and liver protein with homology to bacterial acetyltransferases involved in drug resistance. This gene is localized on chromosome 2 in the vicinity of the NAT8 gene and may represent a pseudogene of NAT8. This gene contains two polymorphic nonsense mutations that disrupt the active site of the protein. The full-length product of this gene contains a complete acetyltransferase domain and is identical in length to NAT8. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NAT8B Gene

NAT8B (N-Acetyltransferase 8B (GCN5-Related, Putative, Gene/Pseudogene)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biological oxidations. GO annotations related to this gene include N-acetyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAT8B Gene

  • 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).
