Official Full Name N-acetylneuraminic acid synthase
Background Sialic acid synthase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the NANS gene. This gene encodes an enzyme that functions in the biosynthetic pathways of sialic acids. In vitro, the encoded protein uses N-acetylmannosamine 6-phosphate and mannose 6-phosphate as substrates to generate phosphorylated forms of N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) and 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-nononic acid (KDN), respectively. However, it exhibits much higher activity toward the Neu5Ac phosphate product. In insect cells, expression of this gene results in Neu5Ac and KDN production. This gene is related to the E. coli sialic acid synthase gene neuB, and it can partially restore sialic acid synthase activity in an E. coli neuB-negative mutant.

    nans has several biochemical functions, for example, N-acetylneuraminate synthase activity, N-acylneuraminate cytidylyltransferase activity, N-acylneuraminate-9-phosphate synthase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by nans itself. We selected most functions nans had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with nans. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
