polysialic-acid O-acetyltransferase activity

Known as: lecithin:retinol acyltransferase activity, acetyl-CoA:polysialic-acid O-acetyltransferase activity, lecithin retinol acyl transferase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: acetyl-CoA + an alpha-2,8-linked polymer of sialic acid = CoA + polysialic acid acetylated at O-7 or O-9. [EC:2.3.1.136… (More)
