Fatty Acid Binding: A New Kind of Posttranslational Modification of Membrane Proteins

  • Michael F. G. Schmidt
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 102)


Many cellular functions are carried out by proteins which are in close association with lipid bilayers. The key structure for regulating many of the cell’s activities as a function of the various environmental stimuli is the cell surface membrane. In this regulation, membrane proteins of the cell surface are of utmost importance for receiving extracellular signals as, for instance, through the binding of antigens, hormones, neurotransmitters, lectins, antibodies, neighboring cells, or viruses. The receptors themselves, or other membrane proteins, then transduce information to the appropriate intracellular sites where specific biochemical responses are induced, often including the participation of internal membranes.
