IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
leucine N-acetyltransferase
Other name:
leucine acetyltransferase
Systematic name:
acetyl-CoA:L-leucine N-acetyltransferase



Propanoyl-CoA can act as a donor, but more slowly. L-Arginine, L-valine, L-phenylalanine and peptides containing L-leucine can act as acceptors.
