Non-catalytic component of the NatA N-terminal acetyltransferase, which catalyzes acetylation of proteins beginning with Met-Ser, Met-Gly and Met-Ala. N-acetylation plays a role in normal eukaryotic translation and processing, protect against proteolytic degradation and protein turnover. NAT1 anchors ARD1 and NAT5 to the ribosome and may present the N termini of nascent polypeptides for acetylation.
Synonyms: NatA complex subunit nat1
Gene name: nat1
