Entry: Acetylation

URI: http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/keyword/nature/subjects/acetylation

Acetylation is any chemical reaction that adds an acetyl chemical group (CH3C=O, sometimes abbreviated in chemical structures as Ac) and is a type of acylation reaction. Acetylation of proteins, generally on lysine residues, via an acetyl-coenzyme A donor, can have functional consequences, as in proteins contained within chromatin and metabolic enzymes.
