Abstract A number of viral and eukaryotic proteins which undergo a lipophilic modification by the enzyme N-myristoyltransferase (NMT: NMT1 and NMT2) are required for signal transduction and regulatory functions. We reported a higher expression of NMT2 in most of the cases of cancerous tissues compared to normal tissues by Western blot analysis. Furthermore, protein-protein interaction of NMTs revealed that m-calpain interacts with NMT1 while caspase-3 interacts with NMT2. Our findings provide the first evidence of higher expression of NMT2 in human colorectal adenocarcinomas and the interaction of both forms of NMT with various signaling molecules. In this review, we summarize the recent findings on NMT2 in human colon cancer in our laboratory.
