IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 1-alkyl-2-acetylglycerol O-acyltransferase

Reaction: acyl-CoA + 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycerol = CoA + 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-3-acyl-sn-glycerol

Other name(s): 1-hexadecyl-2-acetylglycerol acyltransferase

Systematic name: acyl-CoA:1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycerol O-acyltransferase

Comments: A number of acyl-CoAs can act as acyl donor; maximum activity is obtained with linoleoyl-CoA. Not identical with EC diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase.
