Review

Protein Methylation in Behavioural Control Mechanisms and in Signal Transduction

M S Springer et al. Nature. .

Abstract

In both prokaryotes and eukaryotes methyl groups can be added to and removed from the carboxyl groups of proteins. Recent work has revealed that these reactions have a role in several behavioural phenomena. The nature of this role has been uncovered in one case--that of bacterial chemotaxis.
