S-acylation by the DHHC protein family

J. Greaves, L. H. Chamberlain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A family of 23 DHHC (Asp-His-His-Cys) proteins that function as mammalian S-acyltransferases has been identified, reinvigorating the study of protein S-acylation. Recent studies have continued to reveal how S-acylation affects target proteins, and have provided glimpses of how DHHC-substrate specificity might be achieved.
