Reactions Classified By SubstrateSmall-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 2.3.1.57

Enzymes and Genes:
spermidine acetyltransferaseInferred from experiment: speG

Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equation for this EC number, which can be found here .

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Direct generic reaction:
an aliphatic α,ω-diamine + acetyl-CoA = an aliphatic N-acetyl-diamine + coenzyme A + H+ (2.3.1.57)

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: diamine N-acetyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: spermidine acetyltransferase, putrescine acetyltransferase, putrescine (diamine)-acetylating enzyme, diamine acetyltransferase, spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase, spermidine N1-acetyltransferase, acetyl-coenzyme A-1,4-diaminobutane N-acetyltransferase, putrescine acetylase, putrescine N-acetyltransferase

Summary:
In this specific E.C. 2.3.1.57 reaction, spermidine is acetylated in response to cell stress.
