Ras oncoprotein activity is strongly influenced by post-translational modifications that occur at the COOH-terminus: isoprenylation, palmitoylation, proteolysis, and carboxylmethylation.  Our studies are focused on the enzymes that direct these modifications and range from investigations of enzyme specificity to inhibitor development.
