An approach to identifying novel substrates of bacterial arylamine N-acetyltransferases.
Arylamine N-acetyltransferases (NATs) catalyse the acetylation of arylamine, arylhydrazine and arylhydroxylamine substrates by acetyl Coenzyme A. NAT has been discovered in a wide range of eukaryotic and prokaryotic species. Although prokaryotic NATs have been implicated in xenobiotic metabolism, to date no endogenous role has been identified for the arylamine N-acetyl transfer reaction in prokaryotes. Investigating the substrate specificity of these enzymes is one approach to determining a p...Expand abstract
