ⓘ Ghrelin O-acyltransferase

Ghrelin O-acyltransferase also known as membrane bound O-acyltransferase domain containing 4 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MBOAT4 gene. It is homologous to other membrane-bound O-acyltransferases.

                                     
  • serine at the 3 - position by the enzyme ghrelin O - acyltransferase GOAT It is located on the cell membrane of ghrelin cells in the stomach and pancreas.
  • Production of n - octanoyl - modified ghrelin in cultured cells requires prohormone processing protease and ghrelin O - acyltransferase as well as n - octanoic acid
  • attachment to lipids - N - myristoylated, S - palmitoylated, prenylated proteins, ghrelin hedgehog proteins www.lipidhome.co.uk. Retrieved 18 July 2019. Rana
