FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Myristate, a rare 14-carbon saturated fatty acid, is cotranslationally attached by an amide linkage to the N-terminal glycine residue of cellular and viral proteins with diverse functions. N-myristoyltransferase (NMT; EC 126.96.36.199) catalyzes the transfer of myristate from CoA to proteins. N-myristoylation appears to be irreversible and is required for full expression of the biologic activities of several N-myristoylated proteins, including the alpha subunit of the signal-transducing guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein) GO (GNAO1; MIM 139311) (Duronio et al., 1992 [PubMed 1570339]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutation of this gene results in embryonic lethality between E3.5 and E7.5. Heterozygotes show partial prenatal lethality. Mice homozygous for a conditional allele knocked out in T cells exhibit reduced T cell, double positive T cell and single positive T cell numbers. [provided by MGI curators]
