Family relationships



ZDHHC17 (also known as HIP14, huntingtin-interacting protein 14) is a palmitoyl acyltransferase (PAT) specific for a subset of neuronal proteins, including SNAP25, DLG4/PSD95, GAD2, SYT1 and HD. It may play a role in the pathogenesis of Huntington disease [PMID: 22155432]. It also mediates Mg2+ transport and may play a role in cellular magnesium homeostasis [PMID: 18794299].
