Accepted name: D-glutamate N-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + D-glutamate = N-acetyl-D-glutamate + CoA
Other name(s): dgcN (gene name)
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:D-glutamate N-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, present in bacteria and archaea, participates in a pathway for the degradation of D-glutamate. The enzyme from the marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas sp. CF6-2 can also acetylate D-glutamine, D-aspartate, and D-asparagine with lower activity.
