    Protein Summary

    The gene MW0638 from Staphylococcus aureus encodes the NP_645455 protein containing GCN5-related N-acetyltransferase (GNAT) domain (PF00583).

    SCOP classifies 2aj6 in the alpha+beta class, N-acetyl transferase family. DALI top hits are with the N-acetyl transferases PDB:2vbq (Z=14), PDB:1s3z and PDB:1eui (Z=13).

    The enzyme represents a large superfamily of functionally diverse enzymes that catalyze the transfer of an acetyl group from acetyl-Coenzyme A to the primary amine of a wide range of acceptor substrates.  Members of this superfamily include aminoglycoside N-acetyltransferases, serotonin N-acetyltransferase, glucosamine-6-phosphate N-acetyltransferase, the histone acetyltransferases, mycothiol synthase, and the Fem family of amino acyl transferases.  The inspection of the available structures of the enzyme homologues  in the PDB database indicates that the tandem GNAT protein from the clavulanic acid biosynthesis pathway from Streptomyces clavuligerus could be the closest functional homologue of the full length protein, containing this C-terminal domain PDB:2wpw (Z=11).  The N-terminal GNAT domain plays a structural role whereas the C-terminal domain is more likely to be directly involved in acetyl transfer [Ref].  Curiously, (3R,5R)-clavulanic acid is a clinically important inhibitor of Class A b-lactamases.  Clavulanic acid cannot be produced efficiently by chemical synthesis, hence it is produced by fermentation of Streptomyces clavuligerus.
