      Myklebust, Line Merethe; Van Damme, Petra; Støve, Svein Isungset; Dörfel, Max J; Abboud, Angèle; Kalvik, Thomas Vikestad; Grauffel, Cédric; Jonckheere, Veronique; Wu, Yiyang; Swensen, Jeffrey; Kaasa, Hanna; Liszczak, Glen; Marmorstein, Ronen; Reuter, Nathalie; Lyon, Gholson J; Gevaert, Kris; Arnesen, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-12-03)
      The X-linked lethal Ogden syndrome was the first reported human genetic disorder associated with a mutation in an N-terminal acetyltransferase (NAT) gene. The affected males harbor an Ser37Pro (S37P) mutation in the gene ...
    • The Human N-Alpha-Acetyltransferase 40 (hNaa40p/ hNatD) Is Conserved from Yeast and N-Terminally Acetylates Histones H2A and H4 

      Hole, Kristine; Van Damme, Petra; Dalva, Monica; Aksnes, Henriette; Glomnes, Nina; Varhaug, Jan Erik; Lillehaug, Johan; Gevaert, Kris; Arnesen, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-09-15)
      Protein Na-terminal acetylation (Nt-acetylation) is considered one of the most common protein modification in eukaryotes, and 80-90% of all soluble human proteins are modified in this way, with functional implications ...
    • NatF Contributes to an Evolutionary Shift in Protein N-Terminal Acetylation and Is Important for Normal Chromosome Segregation 

      Van Damme, Petra; Hole, Kristine; Pimenta-Marques, Ana; Helsens, Kenny; Vandekerckhove, Joël; Martinho, Rui G.; Gevaert, Kris; Arnesen, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-07-07)
      N-terminal acetylation (N-Ac) is a highly abundant eukaryotic protein modification. Proteomics revealed a significant increase in the occurrence of N-Ac from lower to higher eukaryotes, but evidence explaining the underlying ...
    • An organellar Nα-acetyltransferase, Naa60, acetylates cytosolic n termini of transmembrane proteins and maintains golgi integrity 

      Aksnes, Henriette; Van Damme, Petra; Goris, Marianne; Starheim, Kristian K.; Marie, Michael Bruno Eric; Støve, Svein Isungset; Hoel, Camilla; Kalvik, Thomas Vikestad; Hole, Kristine; Glomnes, Nina; Furnes, Clemens; Ljostveit, Sonja; Ziegler, Mathias; Niere, Marc; Gevaert, Kris; Arnesen, Thomas (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-02-26)
      N-terminal acetylation is a major and vital protein modification catalyzed by N-terminal acetyltransferases (NATs). NatF, or Nα-acetyltransferase 60 (Naa60), was recently identified as a NAT in multicellular eukaryotes. ...
