o Abstract
The post-translational addition of palmitate to many integral and peripheral membrane proteins is the most common modification. The palmitate group promotes stable membrane association. In combination with a myristoyl or farnesyl group, palmitoylation essentially permanently anchors a protein to the membrane. The target proteins of Palmitoyl acyltransferase (PAT) can be divided in four classes: (1) transmembrane proteins, (2) prenylated proteins, (3) exclusively palmitoylated proteins, and (4) myristoylated proteins.
