AA-NAT iso100 Controls the night/day rhythm of melatonin production in the pineal gland. Catalyzes the N-acetylation of serotonin into N-acetylserotonin, the penultimate step in the synthesis of melatonin. Belongs to the acetyltransferase family. AANAT subfamily. Highly expressed in pineal gland and at lower levels in the retina. Weak expression in several brain regions and in the pituitary gland. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
