PORCN [ENSP00000322304]

Protein-serine O-palmitoleoyltransferase porcupine; Protein-serine O-palmitoleoyltransferase that acts as a key regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway by mediating the attachment of palmitoleate, a 16-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid (C16:1), to Wnt proteins. Serine palmitoleylation of WNT proteins is required for efficient binding to frizzled receptors; Membrane bound O-acyltransferases
