FunctionPalmitoyltransferase specific for GAP43 and DLG4/PSD95.
Tissue specificityExpressed in placenta, liver, lung, kidney, heart and brain.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ZDHHC15 are the cause of mental retardation X-linked type 91 (MRX91) [MIM:300577]. Mental retardation is characterized by significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Non-syndromic mental retardation patients do not manifest other clinical signs.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DHHC palmitoyltransferase family. Contains 1 DHHC-type zinc finger.
DomainThe DHHC domain is required for palmitoyltransferase activity.
