Brief Introduction of Protein Acetylation

from Creative Proteomics videos

Acetylation refers to a reaction that introduces an acetyl functional group into a chemical compound, in which the hydrogen atom of a hydroxyl group is replaced by an acetyl group (CH3CO) to yield a specific ester, the acetate. Protein acetylation commonly has two different forms. In humans, almost (80%-90%) proteins become co-translationally acetylated at their Nα-termini of the nascent polypeptide chains. Another type is typically acetylated on lysine residues. More can be found at
