dc.description.abstractAcetyl-CoA is an abundant metabolite that can also alter protein function through non-enzymatic N-acetylation of protein lysines. This N-acetylation is greatly enhanced in vitro if an adjacent cysteine undergoes initial S-acetylation, as this can lead to S→N-transfer of the acetyl moiety. Here, using modelled mouse structures of 619 proteins N-acetylated in mouse liver, we show lysine N-acetylation is greater in vivo if a cysteine is within ~10Å. Extension to the genomes of 52 other mammalian and bird species shows pairs of proximal cysteine and N-acetylated lysines are less conserved, implying most N-acetylation is detrimental. Supporting this, there was less conservation of cytosolic pairs of proximal cysteine and N-acetylated lysines in species with longer lifespans. As acetyl-CoA levels are linked to nutrient supply, these findings suggest how dietary restriction could extend lifespan and how pathologies resulting from dietary excess may occur.
