Research Summary

We study how post-translational modifications of proteins alter functioning of the affected proteins as well as the cells, tissues and organisms in which they reside. In particular, we are interested in the physiological function of the attachment of lipids to proteins by a class of enzymes called the ZDHHC protein acyl transferases. There are more than 20 ZDHHC enzymes which are found in numerous cell types, and which catalyze the attachment of lipids to hundreds of diverse proteins. Abberrant functioning of ZDHHC enzymes has been linked to cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and alterations of vascular function.
