Many proteins have the Golgi apparatus as their favorite hangout place. For N-terminal acetyltransferases (NATs), however, this is a rather unique characteristic as only one NAT, Naa60, was shown to localize to intracellular organelles. Naa60 and the means by which it associates with the Golgi membrane caught the interest of researchers at The Department of Molecular Biology who recently... Read more
