Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable cysteine-S-conjugate N-acetyltransferase activity and lysine N-acetyltransferase activity, acting on acetyl phosphate as donor. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; peptide metabolic process; and peptidyl-lysine N6-acetylation. Predicted to be located in endoplasmic reticulum membrane and endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Orthologous to human NAT8 (N-acetyltransferase 8 (putative)) and NAT8B (N-acetyltransferase 8B (putative, gene/pseudogene)).
