Global proteomic analysis of prenylated proteins in Plasmodium falciparum using an alkyne modified isoprenoid analogue

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5141570
PMID: 27924931
DOI: 10.1038/srep38615

[…] n prenylation in P. falciparum reflects a more modest set of prenylated proteins than is observed in fungi or higher eukaryotes, including humans. According to PRENbase (, a curated online database of protein prenylation across sequenced genomes, prenylated proteins in the human genome are spread into 43 clusters of paralogous proteins. Biological functions […]


Identification of a Novel Class of Farnesylation Targets by Structure Based Modeling of Binding Specificity

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 3188499
PMID: 21998565
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002170

[…] the observed in vitro ability to undergo farnesylation of the C-terminus of a protein is to look for homologous proteins that also undergo farnesylation. Such information can easily be retrieved from PRENbase . A search in this database revealed that Kinesin-like protein KIF21B variant (Q2UVF0; CFLT) maps to a cluster of 9 highly similar eukaryotic sequences (E-val
