Accepted name: α-tubulin N-acetyltransferase
Reaction: acetyl-CoA + [α-tubulin]-L-lysine = CoA + [α-tubulin]-N6-acetyl-L-lysine
Other name(s): ATAT1 (gene name); MEC17 (gene name); α-tubulin acetylase; TAT; α-tubulin acetyltransferase; tubulin N-acetyltransferase (ambiguous); acetyl-CoA:α-tubulin-L-lysine N-acetyltransferase; acetyl-CoA:[α-tubulin]-L-lysine 6-N-acetyltransferase
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:[α-tubulin]-L-lysine N6-acetyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme is conserved from protists to mammals and is present in flowering plants. In most organisms it acetylates L-lysine at position 40 of α-tubulin.
