Reactions Classified By SubstrateSmall-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 2.3.1.1

Enzymes and Genes:
L-amino acid N-acyltransferaseInferred from experiment: mnaT

Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: amino-acid N-acetyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: N-acetylglutamate synthase, AGAS, acetylglutamate acetylglutamate synthetase, acetylglutamic synthetase, amino acid acetyltransferase, N-acetyl-L-glutamate synthetase, N-acetylglutamate synthetase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Also acts with L-aspartate and, more slowly, with some other amino acids.
