26227334 Studies indicate that alpha-tubulin acetylation and microtubule level is mainly governed by opposing actions of alpha-tubulin acetyltransferase 1 (ATAT1) and histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6).
25602620 Data suggest that invariant residues Arg132 and Ser160 in catalytic domain of ATAT1 participate in stable interaction with CoA and acetyl-CoA; ATAT1 with mutation at either residue exhibits much faster intracellular degradation.
24906155 Mechanistic underpinnings for TAT activity and its preference for microtubules with slow turnover; cocrystal structures constrain TAT action to the microtubule lumen with Lys40 engaged in a suboptimal active site; despite the confined location of Lys40, TAT efficiently scans the microtubule bidirectionally and acetylates stochastically without preference for ends.
24846647 Crystal structure of the catalytic core of human MEC-17 in complex with acetyl-CoA. MEC17 has large, conserved surface patch that is critical for enzymatic activity suggesting extensive interactions with alpha-tubulin.
24760594 Results suggest that lithium chloride (LiCl) treatments activate alpha-tubulin N-acetyltransferase 1 (alphaTAT1) by the inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK-3beta) and promote the alpha-tubulin acetylation, and then elongate the primary cilia.
24097348 microtubules contacting clathrin-coated pits become acetylated by alphaTAT1; in migrating cells, this mechanism ensures the acetylation of microtubules oriented towards the leading edge, thus promoting directional cell locomotion and chemotaxis
23071318 analysis reveals a basic patch implicated in substrate binding and a conserved glutamine residue required for catalysis, demonstrating that the family of alpha-tubulin acetyltransferases uses a reaction mechanism different from other lysine acetyltransferases
23071314 cysteine residues play important catalytic roles through a ternary complex mechanism. alphaTAT1 mutations have analogous effects on tubulin acetylation in vitro and in cells
