A bioinformatics-based overview of protein Lys-Ne-acetylation
Download [PDF File]
Among posttranslational modifications, there are some conceptual similarities between Lys-Nε-acetylation and Ser/Thr/Tyr O-phosphorylation. Herein we present a bioinformatics-based overview of reversible protein Lys-acetylation, including some comparisons with reversible protein phosphorylation. The study of Lys-acetylation of plant proteins has lagged behind studies of mammalian and microbial cells; thousands of acetylation sites have been identified in mammalian proteins compared with only hundreds of sites in plant proteins. While most previous emphasis was focused on posttranslational modifications of histones, more recent studies have addressed metabolic regulation. Being directly coupled with cellular CoA/acetyl-CoA and NAD/NADH, reversible Lys-Nε-acetylation has the potential to control, or contribute to control, of primary metabolism, signaling, and growth and development.
