Other name(s): 3-aminoglycoside acetyltransferase; 3-N-aminoglycoside acetyltransferase; aminoglycoside N3-acetyltransferase; acetyl-CoA:2-deoxystreptamine-antibiotic N3'-acetyltransferase (incorrect); aminoglycoside N3'-acetyltransferase (incorrect)
Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:2-deoxystreptamine-antibiotic N3-acetyltransferase
Comments: Different from EC 188.8.131.52 gentamicin 3-N-acetyltransferase. A wide range of antibiotics containing the 2-deoxystreptamine ring can act as acceptors, including gentamicin, kanamycin, tobramycin, neomycin and apramycin.
