N-acetylation occurs in two sequential steps via a ping-pong Bi-Bi mechanism. In the first step, the acetyl group from acetyl-CoA is transferred to a conserved cysteine residue (position 68) in the active site of NAT, with consequent release of coenzyme-A. In the second step, the acetyl group is transferred to the acceptor substrate and the enzyme returns to its initial state.
