Protein lipidation regulates the localization and function of membrane-associated proteins. Many efforts have been done in the last decade to develop methods allowing the global analysis of lipidated proteins. The use of bioorthogonal reactions combined with mass spectrometry has provided a powerful method to systematically analyze these modified proteins, thereby revealing the key role of lipid anchors in controlling protein activity both in health and disease. The knowledge gained in this emerging field will strongly benefit from the recent advances in quantitative chemical proteomics enabling the simultaneous analysis of healthy and diseased patients and leading ultimately to the identification of potential targets for therapeutic interventions.
