Description

Myristoyl-CoA:protein N-myristoyltransferase (EC:2.3.1.97) (Nmt) [PMID: 8322618] is the enzyme responsible for transferring a myristate group on the N-terminal glycine of a number of cellular eukaryotics and viral proteins. Nmt is a monomeric protein of about 50 to 60kDa whose sequence appears to be well conserved.
