  • prenylated and prenylation is required for the membrane association
  • GBP1, GBP3, and GBP5 were exclusively detected in the cytoplasm, whereas GBP2 and GBP4 displayed a nucleocytoplasmic distribution
  • basic FUNCTION
  • involved in immune response
  • GBP1, GBP2 and GBP5 were able to redirect non-prenylated GBPs to their compartment in a prenylation-dependent manner
  • is potentially an essential immune effector molecule mediating antiparasitic resistance
