GeneCards Summary for ZDHHC21 Gene

ZDHHC21 (Zinc Finger DHHC-Type Containing 21) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and eNOS activation and regulation. GO annotations related to this gene include protein-cysteine S-palmitoyltransferase activity and palmitoyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ZDHHC7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZDHHC21 Gene

  • Palmitoylates sex steroid hormone receptors, including ESR1, PGR and AR, thereby regulating their targeting to the plasma membrane. This affects rapid intracellular signaling by sex hormones via ERK and AKT kinases and the generation of cAMP, but does not affect that mediated by their nuclear receptor (By similarity).
