General description

This is a collection of reproducible techniques for studying protein lipidation. These methods, deal with glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-containing compounds, protein fatty acylation, and protein prenylation. Included are techniques for determining the chemical structure of GPI-anchors, for radiolabeling the prenyl groups of protein in eukaryotic cells, a tool for developing inhibitors of the protein farnesyltransferase, and for a lysosomal enzyme that cleaves fatty acyl groups from proteins.
