Protein Palmyitoylation: Examination and Characterization of the Protein Palitoyl-CoA Transferase Family of Dictyostelium

The Lab at the University of Maine Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Molecular Biology is involved in basic research in signal transduction. This request will investigate the properties of the palmitoyltransferase family. Preliminary work has been ongoing and was presented at the Maine Medical Research Symposium April 25-27, 2003. With these funds it is expected that enough results will be obtained to pursue a more detailed and aggressive research proposal to a national granting agency.
