HHPred hits many acetyltransferases. The matches are across most of the acetyltransferase domain in each alignment. This link to HHPred results should be live for about 2 weeks: I'm attaching the full HHPred output as text.

With aa sequence alignments, the alignment is narrowed to just the central acetyl-CoA binding portion on CDD.

We also have many BLAST hits for an N-acetyl transferase on PhagesDB BLAST and NCBI BLAST. When I tried HHPred I got many hits for acetyl transferases (around a probability of 90). Is this a function we can use?
