AANAT Information: AANAT Protein, AANAT Antibody and AANAT Gene

AANAT Gene family

AANAT Protein

AANAT protein function

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.

AANAT protein expression

Tissue specificity

Highly expressed in pineal gland and at lower levels in the retina. Weak expression in several brain regions and in the pituitary gland.
