Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Classically perceived as means for recruiting proteins to the membranes, protein lipid modifications are known today to play diverse roles in subcellular targeting, protein-protein interactions and signaling. This review focuses on three protein lipid modifications: prenylation, S-acylation and N-myristoylation and attempts to provide an up-to-date view of their function by focusing on several model proteins.
