PF3D7_0303400 palmitoyltransferase

Left: Confocal microscopy localizes PfAnkDHHC (palmitoyl transferase) to Golgi. 3D7 schizonts were labeled with (A) rat anti-PfAnkDHHC, and (B) rabbit anti-ERD2, a known Golgi marker. (C) Merged image of the two stains shows extensive co-localization. (D) Corresponding DIC image. All images 630x.

Right: Proposed model of topology of PfAnkDHHC in the Golgi membrane. The DHHC domain is exposed to the cytosol to serve as a palmitoyl transferase to cytosoloic proteins or transmembrane proteins with cysteines.
