EC 2.3.1.81     
Accepted name: aminoglycoside N3′-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + a 2-deoxystreptamine antibiotic = CoA + N3′-acetyl-2-deoxystreptamine antibiotic
Glossary: kanamycin
Other name(s): 3′-aminoglycoside acetyltransferase; 3-N-aminoglycoside acetyltransferase
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:2-deoxystreptamine-antibiotic N3′-acetyltransferase
Comments: Different from EC 2.3.1.60 gentamicin 3′-N-acetyltransferase. A wide range of antibiotics containing the 2-deoxystreptamine ring can act as acceptors, including gentamicin, kanamycin, tobramycin, neomycin and apramycin.
