Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables protein-cysteine S-palmitoyltransferase activity. Involved in glucose import in response to insulin stimulus; peptidyl-L-cysteine S-palmitoylation; and regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane. Located in Golgi apparatus. Is expressed in early conceptus and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human ZDHHC7 (zinc finger DHHC-type palmitoyltransferase 7).
