Accepted name: diamine N-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + an alkane-α,ω-diamine = CoA + an N-acetyldiamine
Glossary: spermidine = N-(3-aminopropyl)butane-1,4-diamine
spermine = N,N′-bis(3-aminopropyl)butane-1,4-diamine
Other name(s): spermidine acetyltransferase; putrescine acetyltransferase; putrescine (diamine)-acetylating enzyme; diamine acetyltransferase; spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase; spermidine N1-acetyltransferase; acetyl-coenzyme A-1,4-diaminobutane N-acetyltransferase; putrescine acetylase; putrescine N-acetyltransferase
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:alkane-α,ω-diamine N-acetyltransferase
Comments: Acts on propane-1,3-diamine, pentane-1,5-diamine, putrescine, spermidine (forming N1- and N8-acetylspermidine), spermine, N1-acetylspermidine and N8-acetylspermidine.
