Arylamine N-acetyltransferases in prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes: a survey of public databases.

Abstract

Arylamine N-acetyltransferases (NATs) are xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes found in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. NATs have been characterized in bacteria (Bacilli, Mycobacteria, Salmonella etc.), laboratory animals (chicken, rabbit, rodents etc.) and humans, where the NAT loci occupy 230 kilobases on chromosome 8p22. Our previous comprehensive search for NAT… (More)
