This clan contains families related to N-acetyltransferases. N-acetyltransferases catalyse the transfer of acetyl groups from acetyl-CoA to arylamines.
The clan contains the following 31 members:Acetyltransf_1 Acetyltransf_10 Acetyltransf_13 Acetyltransf_3 Acetyltransf_4 Acetyltransf_5 Acetyltransf_6 Acetyltransf_7 Acetyltransf_8 Acetyltransf_9 Acetyltransf_CG ATE_C ATE_N Autoind_synth DUF1248 DUF1999 DUF2156 DUF3749 DUF482 DUF619 FemAB FR47 Gly_acyl_tr_C GNAT_acetyltr_2 GNAT_acetyltran Leu_Phe_trans Mec-17 Mig-14 MOZ_SAS NMT NodA
We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

You can use the tree controls to manipulate how the interactive tree is displayed:
- show/hide the summary boxes
- highlight species that are represented in the seed alignment
- expand/collapse the tree or expand it to a given depth
- select a sub-tree or a set of species within the tree and view them graphically or as an alignment
- save a plain text representation of the tree
For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the Acetyltransf_9 domain has been found. There are 47 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
