Biochem/physiol Actions

Myristic acid is commonly added via a covalent linkage to the N-terminal glycine of many eukaryotic and viral proteins, a process called myristoylation. Myristoylation enables proteins to bind to cell membranes and facilitates protein-protein interactions. Myristolyation of proteins affect many cellular functions and thus has implications in health and disease .
