Accepted name: heparan-α-glucosaminide N-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + heparan sulfate α-D-glucosaminide = CoA + heparan sulfate N-acetyl-α-D-glucosaminide
Other name(s): acetyl-CoA:α-glucosaminide N-acetyltransferase
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:heparan-α-D-glucosaminide N-acetyltransferase
Comments: Brings about the acetylation of glucosamine groups of heparan sulfate and heparin from which the sulfate has been removed. Also acts on heparin. Not identical with EC glucosamine N-acetyltransferase or EC glucosamine-phosphate N-acetyltransferase.
