Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits N-acetyltransferase activity. Predicted to contribute to peptide alpha-N-acetyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including N-terminal peptidyl-methionine acetylation; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and protein stabilization. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 50. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cornea endothelium; genitourinary system; gut; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to human NAA15 (N(alpha)-acetyltransferase 15, NatA auxiliary subunit).
