Myristoylation involves the addition of a 14-carbon fatty acid to the N-terminal glycine of proteins by N-myristoyltransferase. Myristoylation promotes protein-membrane and protein-protein interactions that are crucial for the function of myristoylated proteins. Myristoylation occurs cotranslationally on the nascent polypeptide following the removal of the initiator methionine or post-translationally following the proteolytic exposure of an N-terminal glycine.
