post translational modification methylation
  • Melissa George
PTMs refer to the covalent and generally enzymatic modification of proteins during or after protein biosynthesis. It denotes changes in the polypeptide chain as a result of adding distinct chemical moieties to amino acid residues. PTMs are the foundation of governing intricate cellular process, such as cell division, growth, differentiation, signaling and regulation. Also, post translational modification methylation are involved in many cellular processes including the maintenance of protein structure and integrity, regulation of metabolism & defense processes, cellular recognition and morphology changes. Consequently, analysis of protein post-translational modifications, including the modification categories and modified sites, is particularly important for study of cell biology and disease diagnostics and prevention.
