Palmitoylation, the attachment of palmitate and other fatty acids on to cysteine residues, is a common post-translational modification of both integral and peripheral membrane proteins. Dynamic palmitoylation controls the intracellular distribution of peripheral membrane proteins by regulating membrane-cytosol exchange and/or by modifying the flux of the proteins through vesicular transport systems.
