Farnesylation is a process by which a farnesyl group is added to a cysteine residue following translation to form a thioether linkage. An enzyme called farnesyltransferase catalyzes this reaction. Since farnesyl groups are hydrophobic, farnesylation PTMs causes proteins to associate with the cellular membrane, and thus their critical role in cellular signaling.
