Domain relationships



Myristoyl-CoA:protein N-myristoyltransferase (EC: (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.

The N and C-terminal domains of NMT are structurally similar, each adopting an acyl-CoA N-acyltransferase-like fold. This entry represents the N-terminal region.
