Homo sapiens

Also known as AAC2; PNAT; NAT-2

Gene ID: 10 | Gene type: protein coding

About NAT2

Cytogenetic location: 8p22 Genomic coordinates (GRCh38): 8:18,386,301-18,401,218 (from NCBI)

This gene has 2 transcripts (splice variants), 303 orthologues, 1 paralogue and is associated with 1 phenotype. Biased expression in liver (RPKM 16.4), duodenum (RPKM 11.9) and 2 other tissues.


This gene encodes an Enzyme that functions to both activate and deactivate arylamine and hydrazine drugs and carcinogens. Polymorphisms in this gene are responsible for the N-acetylation polymorphism in which human populations segregate into rapid, intermediate, and slow acetylator phenotypes. Polymorphisms in this gene are also associated with higher incidences of Cancer and drug toxicity. A second polymorphic arylamine N-acetyltransferase gene (NAT1), is located near this gene (NAT2).
