Gene: AANAT (aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AANAT
Name: aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase
Description: Exhibits aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including N-terminal protein amino acid acetylation; cellular response to cAMP; and melatonin biosynthetic process. Localizes to the cytosol and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Implicated in advanced sleep phase syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AA-NAT; arylalkylamine n - acetyltransferase; arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase; DSPS; serotonin acetylase; serotonin N-acetyltransferase; SNAT
