Recombinant mouse glucosamine-6-phosphate acetyltransferase 1 has been expressed in both Escherichia coli and insect cells. The subunit relative molecular mass was estimated by SDS-PAGE, but the subunit structure was not determined [Boehmelt00].
Glucosamine-6-phosphate N-acetyltransferase is a member of the Gcn5-related N-acetyltransferases that catalyze the transfer of an acetyl group of acetyl-CoA to the primary amine of an acceptor substrate. The crystal structure of the enzyme from Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been determined and indicated a homodimeric structure [Peneff01]. Reviewed in [Milewski06].
