Gene RIF (6)

26550943 Characterization and recombinant expression of the nat8l gene that codes for ANAT.
26511490 NAA is produced specifically in NSCLC tumors through NAT8L overexpression, and its extracellular secretion can be detected in blood
24246274 This study demonistrated that the human NAT8L gene related to reward dependence, a personality trait, and grey matter volume in the caudate nucleus in healthy subjects, suggesting that NAT8L might also affect human personality
24155240 Nat8l impacts on the brown adipogenic phenotype
21936773 The aim of the present study was to determine which regions of the protein are important for its catalytic activity and its subcellular localization.
19807691 Results indicated that NAT8L, but not NAT14, catalysed the synthesis of NAA from L-aspartate and acetyl-CoA.
