    ..Overall patterns of N-terminal acetylated proteins and the orthologous genes possibly encoding NATs suggest that yeast and higher eukaryotes have the same systems for N-terminal acetylation. ..

    ..Here, we report on a member of the GCN5-related N-acetyltransferase superfamily and another B-type HAT, HAT4. Interestingly, HAT4 is localized in the Golgi apparatus and displays a substrate preference for lysine residues of ..

    ..Loss of U12 introns or the genes containing them is more common than conversion to the U2-type. The degeneracy of U12-type terminal dinucleotides among natural U12-type introns is higher than previously thought. ..
