Fatty acylation of synaptotagmin in PC12 cells and synaptosomes.


Synaptotagmin I is localized to synaptic vesicles where it functions in the calcium-triggered release of neurotransmitters. Here we demonstrate that synaptotagmin I covalently incorporated [3H]palmitate after metabolic labelling of PC-12 cells and rat brain synaptosomes. Labeling was localized to a tryptic fragment that contains a cluster of cysteine… (More)
