S-Palmitoylation, the only reversible post-translational lipid modification, confers unique biochemical and functional properties to proteins. Although it has long been known that viral proteins are palmitoylated, recent studies reveal that this modification plays a critical role for pathogens of all

S-palmitoylation is post-translational modification, which consists in the addition of a C16 acyl chain to cytosolic cysteines and which is unique amongst lipid modifications in that it is reversible. It can thus, like phosphorylation or ubiquitination, act as a switch.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is characterized by dyslipidemia with elevated free fatty acids (FFAs). Loss of podocytes is a hallmark of diabetic nephropathy, and podocytes are highly susceptible to saturated FFAs but not to protective, monounsaturated FFAs. We report that

Free fatty acids (FFAs) have pleiotropic effects on the pancreatic β-cell. Although acute exposure to FFAs stimulates glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS), prolonged exposure impairs GSIS and causes apoptosis. FFAs exert their effects both via intracellular metabolism and interaction with the

Obesity is associated with insulin resistance and abnormal peripheral tissue glucose uptake. However, the mechanisms that interfere with insulin signaling and glucose uptake in human skeletal muscle during obesity are not fully characterized. Using microarray, we have identified that the
