Future Events > Regulation of protein trafficking and function by palmitoylation

Regulation of protein trafficking and function by palmitoylation

23—25 August 2012

St Anne's College, Oxford, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


Meeting background

The post-translational modification of proteins by palmitoylation has emerged as a highly versatile mechanism for regulating the trafficking, membrane micro-localisation and function of diverse protein families. This meeting will focus on the most recent breakthroughs in palmitoylation research.


Reviews by the speakers, based on their presentations at this major international meeting, will be published exclusively in Biochemical Society Transactions (Volume 41, part 1).


Abstract deadline EXTENDED: 27 June 2012.

The Biochemical Journal Poster Prize of £250 was awarded to Ayelén González Montoro for her poster entitled "Mutational analysis of the palmitoyltransferase Swf1"


Earlybird registration deadline:  23 July 2012.

Registration is closed for this event.


IUBMB Bursaries are available for this meeting.
