IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
glycine N-acyltransferase
Other names:
glycine acyltransferase
Systematic name:
acyl-CoA:glycine N-acyltransferase



The CoA derivatives of a number of aliphatic and aromatic acids, but not phenylacetyl-CoA or (indol-3-yl)acetyl-CoA, can act as donor. Not identical with EC glutamine N-acyltransferase or EC glycine N-benzoyltransferase.
