GeneCards Summary for ZDHHC3 Gene

ZDHHC3 (Zinc Finger, DHHC-Type Containing 3) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include palmitoyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ZDHHC7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZDHHC3 Gene

  • Palmitoyltransferase with broad specificity. Palmitoylates GABA receptors on their gamma subunit (GABRG1, GABRG2 and GABRG3), which regulates synaptic clustering and/or cell surface stability. Palmitoylates glutamate receptors GRIA1 and GRIA2, which leads to their retention in Golgi (By similarity).
