  • The aspartate‐histidine‐histidine‐cysteine (DHHC) protein family shares a 50‐amino acid cysteine‐rich domain with a conserved DHHC signature motif. DHHC proteins play a critical role in several biological processes. Several DHHC family members have been implicated in neuronal differentiation and synaptic plasticity. And disruptions to their function can lead to disease in the nervous system. Here, we investigate the role of Zdhhc15b, a DHHC family member, in neuro development in zebrafish… CONTINUE READING
