26819345 Findings indicate that the NAA pathway has a prominent role in promoting tumor growth and represents a valuable target for anticancer therapy.
25301944 ATase1 and ATase2 are endoplasmic reticulum-based acetyltransferases that form homo- and heterodimers and associate with members of the oligosaccharyltransferase complex
22267734 Biochemical inhibition of the acetyltransferases ATase1 and ATase2 reduces beta-secretase (BACE1) levels and Abeta generation.
20392701 NAT8 is the enzyme that acetylates cysteine S-conjugates to mercapturic acids
