Accepted name: [β-tubulin]-L-lysine N-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + a [β-tubulin]-L-lysine = CoA + a [β-tubulin]-N6-acetyl-L-lysine
Other name(s): San; NatE; NAA50 (gene name)
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:[β-tubulin]-L-lysine N6-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme acetylates L-lysine at position 252 of β-tubulin, which is located at the interface of α/β-tubulin heterodimers and interacts with the phosphate group of the α-tubulin-bound GTP. The acetylation is thought to attenuate tubulin incorporation into microtubules. The enzyme catalysing this activity (NAA50) also catalyses the acetylation of certain N-terminal methionyl residues. That activity is classified as EC, N-terminal methionine Nα-acetyltransferase NatE. cf. EC, α-tubulin N-acetyltransferase.
