NAA10 N-alpha-acetyltransferase 10, NatA catalytic subunit

Gene ID: 8260, updated on 19-Sep-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: TE2; ARD1; NATD; ARD1A; ARD1P; OGDNS; hARD1; DXS707; MCOPS1


N-alpha-acetylation is among the most common post-translational protein modifications in eukaryotic cells. This process involves the transfer of an acetyl group from acetyl-coenzyme A to the alpha-amino group on a nascent polypeptide and is essential for normal cell function. This gene encodes an N-terminal acetyltransferase that functions as the catalytic subunit of the major amino-terminal acetyltransferase A complex. Mutations in this gene are the cause of Ogden syndrome. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
