A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
N-terminal amino-acid N(alpha)-acetyltransferase NatA.
Reaction catalysed
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-glycyl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-glycyl-[protein] + CoA
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-L-alanyl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-L-alanyl-[protein] + CoA
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-L-seryl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-L-seryl-[protein] + CoA
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-L-valyl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-L-valyl-[protein] + CoA
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-L-cysteinyl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-L-cysteinyl-[protein] + CoA
  • Acetyl-CoA + an N-terminal-L-threonyl-[protein] <=> an N-terminal-N(alpha)-acetyl-L-threonyl-[protein] + CoA
  • N-terminal-acetylases (NATs) catalyze the covalent attachment of an acetyl moiety from acetyl-CoA to the free alpha-amino group at the N-terminus of a protein.
  • This irreversible modification neutralizes the positive charge at the N-terminus and makes the N-terminal residue larger and more hydrophobic.
  • The NatA complex is found in all eukaryotic organisms, and specifically targets N-terminal Ala, Gly, Cys, Ser, Thr, and Val residues, that became available after removal of the initiator methionine.
