We recently cloned the CHIC2 gene (previously BTL) by virtue of its involvement in a chromosomal translocation t(4;12)(q11;p13) occurring in acute myeloid leukemias. In this study we show that CHIC2 is a member of a highly conserved family of proteins characterized by the presence of a striking cysteine-rich hydrophobic (CHIC) motif. Our data illustrate that cysteines in this central CHIC motif are palmitoylated and that CHIC2 is associated with vesicular structures and the plasma membrane.
