β-galactoside transacetylase is an enzyme that transfers an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA to β-galactosides. Coded by the gene (lacA) in the lac operon of Escherichia coli. Its precise function as part of the lac operon is not understood currently.
The kinetics of the enzyme were worked out in 1995.
