Molecular view of DHHC palmitoyltransferases. Human DHHC20 palmitoyltransferase (yellow) shown localized in the Golgi body membrane (green stacks). The Zn2+ ions are shown as gray spheres and the acyl chain of the palmitoyl group in white sticks. A hypothetical substrate (blue) approaches the palmitoyltransferase from the left and, after palmitoylation, is localized to the Golgi body membrane through anchoring of the palmitoyl group, now transferred to the substrate.
