“Background Proteins posttranslationally modified by covalent lipid attachment are present in eukaryal and bacterial organisms. In bacteria, 1–3% of the genome encode for lipoproteins. Bacterial lipoproteins are anchored in the membrane surface where they fulfill various cellular functions, ranging from cell wall integrity, secretion, nutrient uptake, environmental signaling to virulence [1–3].
