We have explored the acyl-CoA substrate specificity of Saccharomyces cerevisiae myristoyl-CoA:protein N-myristoyltransferase (NMT) by synthesizing 81 fatty acid analogs and surveying their activity(More)
A new class of antifungal agents has been discovered which exert their activity by blockade of myristoylCoA: protein N-myristoyltransferase (NMT; EC 2.1.3.97). Genetic experiments have established(More)
Covalent linkage of myristate (tetradecanoate; 14:0) to the NH2-terminal glycine residue of the human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) 55-kDa gag polyprotein precursor (Pr55gag) is necessary for its(More)
Covalent attachment of myristic acid (C14:0) to the amino-terminal glycine residue of a variety of eukaryotic cellular and viral proteins can have a profound influence on their biological properties.(More)
MyristoylCoA:protein N-myristoyltransferase (NMT) covalently attaches the 14-carbon saturated fatty acid myristate, via an amide bond, to the N-terminal glycine residues of a variety of cellular(More)
