Sorry, no etymologies found.
Interference with acylation using small molecules is a strategy to modulate cellular localization-and thereby unregulated signaling-caused by palmitoylated Ras proteins.
Figure 3: Palmostatin B causes redistribution of palmitoylated Ras isoforms.
The inhibitor, palmostatin B, perturbs the cellular acylation cycle at the level of depalmitoylation and thereby causes a loss of the precise steady-state localization of palmitoylated Ras.
Richards MS, Butcher AJ, Nieto-Rostro M, Pratt WS, et al. (2005) Interaction via a key tryptophan in the I-II linker of N-type calcium channels is required for β1 but not for palmitoylated β2, implicating an additional binding site in the regulation of channel voltage-dependent properties.
