QuickView for AANAT (gene)

Gene Symbol:
AANAT Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase
DSPS, SNAT, serotonin N-acetyltransferase, arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, serotonin acetylase
Genomic Location:
Chr 17: 71975246-71977794
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the acetyltransferase superfamily. It is the penultimate enzyme in melatonin synthesis and controls the night/day rhythm in melatonin production in the vertebrate pineal gland. Melatonin is essential for the function of the circadian clock that influences activity and sleep. This enzyme is regulated by cA...
