Abstract

Methods to detect and characterize cellular protein myristoylation and palmitoylation are invaluable in cell biology, immunology, and virology. Recently, we developed ω-alkynyl fatty acid probes for monitoring myristoylation and palmitoylation of cellular proteins. This article describes a biochemical procedure for metabolic labeling of cells with ω-alkynyl fatty acids and click chemistry.
