Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Palmitoyltransferase ZDHHC7
  1. Zinc finger DHHC domain-containing protein 7
  2. Zinc finger protein 370
  3. DHHC-7
Gene Name ZDHHC7
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Palmitoyltransferase with broad specificity. Palmitoylates SNAP25 and DLG4/PSD95. May palmitoylate GABA receptors on their gamma subunit (GABRG1, GABRG2 and GABRG3) and thereby regulate their synaptic clustering and/or cell surface stability (By similarity). Palmitoylates sex steroid hormone receptors, including ESR1, PGR and AR, thereby regulating their targeting to the plasma membrane. This affects rapid intracellular signaling by sex hormones via ERK and AKT kinases and the generation of cAMP, but does not affect that mediated by their nuclear receptors.
Pathways Not Available
