S-palmitoylation is post-translational modification, which consists in the addition of a C16 acyl chain to cytosolic cysteines and which is unique amongst lipid modifications in that it is reversible. It can thus, like phosphorylation or ubiquitination, act as a switch.

S-Palmitoylation, the only reversible post-translational lipid modification, confers unique biochemical and functional properties to proteins. Although it has long been known that viral proteins are palmitoylated, recent studies reveal that this modification plays a critical role for pathogens of all

Free fatty acids (FFAs) have pleiotropic effects on the pancreatic β-cell. Although acute exposure to FFAs stimulates glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS), prolonged exposure impairs GSIS and causes apoptosis. FFAs exert their effects both via intracellular metabolism and interaction with the
