Accepted name: 2-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase

Reaction: acyl-CoA + 2-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate = CoA + 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate

Other name(s): 2-acylglycerophosphate acyltransferase

Systematic name: acyl-CoA:2-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate O-acyltransferase

Comments: Saturated acyl-CoA thioesters are the most effective acyl donors.
