Accepted name: glutamine N-acyltransferase

Reaction: acyl-CoA + L-glutamine = CoA + N-acyl-L-glutamine

Systematic name: acyl-CoA:L-glutamine N-acyltransferase

Comments: Phenylacetyl-CoA and (indol-3-yl)acetyl-CoA, but not benzoyl-CoA, can act as acyl donors. Not identical with EC glycine N-acyltransferase or EC glycine N-benzoyltransferase.
