N-myristoyltransferase (NMT) is an essential eukaryotic enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of myristate to the NH2-terminal glycine residue of a number of important proteins of diverse function. Little is known about the control and regulation of NMT in higher eukaryotes. Bovine spleen N-myristoyltransferase has been purified and characterized [Raju, RVS, Kalra J & Sharma RK (1994) J Biol Chem 269:12080–12083]. The activation of bovine spleen NMT with thiol reducing compounds, and its… CONTINUE READING
