      Alternate Names
      • Golgi-specific DHHC zinc finger protein
      Background InformationThe Golgi-specific DHHC zinc finger protein (GODZ) is a widely expressed, highly conserved integral membrane protein. GODZ mRNA is found in many tissues; however, in brain the protein is detected concentrated and asymmetrically distributed within neuronal Golgi complex only. The interaction of GODZ with specific GABAA and GluRalpha receptor subunits in vitro and likely palmitoylation function suggests a role for this novel protein in receptor trafficking in vivo. Since GODZ is restricted to Golgi and receptors such as GABAA do not normally accumulate there, no long-term colocalization is likely to be found. The palmitoylation of GABAA and other diverse neuronal proteins, including GPCRs, by a transient GODZ protein complex represents a reversible posttranslational modification key for regulated trafficking in neurons.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: Q9NYG2 # Palmitoyltransferase with broad specificity. Palmitoylates GABA receptors on their gamma subunit (GABRG1, GABRG2 and GABRG3), which regulates synaptic clustering and/or cell surface stability. Palmitoylates glutamate receptors GRIA1 and GRIA2, which leads to their retention in Golgi (By similarity).
      SIZE: 327 amino acids; 37338 Da
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (By similarity).
      DOMAIN:SwissProt: Q9NYG2 The DHHC domain is required for palmitoyltransferase activity (By similarity).
      PTM: Autopalmitoylated (By similarity).
      SIMILARITY: Belongs to the DHHC palmitoyltransferase family. & Contains 1 DHHC-type zinc finger.
