ZDHHC7

A gene on chromosome 16q24.1 that encodes a DHHC-type zinc finger protein and palmitoyltransferase with broad specificity. It palmitoylates SNAP25 and DLG4/PSD95, sex steroid hormone receptors—including ESR1, PGR and AR—and possibly also GABA receptors on their gamma subunit, regulating their synaptic clustering and/or cell surface stability.
